Shawn had previously been staying at the Dorothy Day house after he got out of rehab. It helped him turn his life around. He got into low income housing and had been taking care of his apartment for the last 6 months. Shawn found out that his kid is going to come and spend the summer with him, and he knew that his apartment was not big enough for the both. Shawn decided to sign on with a different lease, and his original landlord said he would let Shawn out of his lease if he could find someone else to fill the spot.
