Homeless Mother Arrested For Trying To Do Better For Her Family

Sheryce Dozier is a homeless 28-year-old mother who left her 2, 4-and 7-year-old children on a bench outside of a closed Applebee's restaurant Thursday morning in order for her to attend a job orientation event at a nearby Wendy's. After seeing the children unaccompanied for 15 minutes, an Applebee's manager called the police saying that three little African-American kids were sitting in her lobby unattended.

Police were able to track Dozier who said she planned to leave the children for 30 minutes, but also was informed that her eldest son should have been in school. Dozier recently moved to Middleton, Ohio and has been living in a homeless shelter for women. She faces three charges of child endangerment. When her sister was able to pick up the children, police took them back to the homeless shelter where Melissa Schwarber is director. Schwarber said it can be a tedious process to get childcare vouchers, but it's worth it. Dozier is set to appear in court on Wednesday.
