Motel families live in limbo

On a sun-splashed afternoon, a yellow Independence school bus rumbles into the parking lot of the motel at Noland Road and Interstate 70. The doors fling open, and a handful of schoolchildren scamper to the waiting arms of parents and relatives. For these and scores of schoolchildren across the area, home is not a street address or an apartment number, but a motel room number. The kitchen, living room and bedroom are all the same. They are not technically homeless. Yet they have no home beyond a week-to-week existence.
