L-R Leslie Landers, Kori Ceola with her dog Hoss, Leslie's huaband Erick Ibarra, and Montarius Sanford in their room at the Motel 6 in Fayetteville, AR on July 28, 2021. Leslie and Erick have been without a home for about a year (Erick currently has Covid, putting him out of work at the moment from his job at Taco Bell), and for Montarius, it's been close to 8 months without a home. After everyone helped unload Kori's things and get her moved into the room, Leslie told Kori, "We've all showered, so now it's free for you." For the past week and a half, Kori and the 3 others were staying not too far from the Speedway gas station and store in Springdale with a woman that had a roach/rat/bed bug/mold infested apartment and visits the local park to find homeless that need a place to stay in return for them paying her rent. After a week and a half there, Kori and the 3 others decided they'd had enough and went in on this Motel 6 room, with the plan to stay 12 days there. A free public bus line will be Kori's transportation to her work at Speedway until they can find a place that's closer. In an ever evolving scene, Kori is always having to adapt. As she talked through her situation she said, "I'm trying to figure it out. I will. I always do." As she talked with people at the Speedway while working earlier, I overheard her say to a customer that was having a hard time, "It'll get better, it always gets better." Kori has a way of keeping a positive outlook.
