Tight quarters: Kathy Brown, top left, lived with her family of three in Countryside Inn Motel in Cave City, Ky., for almost a year. Her husband died from a heart attack, so Kathy baby-sat to help support her three children — or to help her get along. Sometimes she took payment in the form of marijuana or food. This night she enjoyed a cigarette after a long day of babysitting for Beth Ford, 22, a mother of three, who lived in a nearby motel.
