S2E11 June and Doug
28-year-old June lives in a mobile home filled with keepsakes like Care Bears and Cabbage Patch dolls. She’s not only facing violations of the city’s fire codes, but a strained relationship with her 13-year-old daughter, Tori. There is constant tension between mother and daughter and Tori has threatened to abandon her mom as soon as she turns 18. Faced with the loss of her home and daughter, June must get help now. Doug, 38, is a single dad of two adopted children. Kylie (6) and Nate (8) both have special needs and the conditions of their home are only adding to their problems. The family’s kitchen is hardly usable and the refrigerator doesn’t always work. In fits of rage, Nate pushes over hoarded stacks and throws anything in sight. Now, a social worker will be visiting the house along with the children’s therapist, and Doug fears they may remove his kids from the home.
