It was at the beginning of August when the 21-year-old, who is eight-months pregnant, was told she had to leave Leeder Place Family Shelter, located in East Gwillimbury, just north of Newmarket, without a place to stay.
She and her partner, Tim Black, 27, say they had given notice of intent to leave the shelter, but when their new accommodations fell through, they went back to the shelter with a week to go before they were scheduled to leave and asked to stay.
Nonetheless, when the date came, they were forced to leave, as the shelter had given their space to another family.
When Davenport-Tobin tried many other options available, she was told, “Sorry, no beds here”.
