Tanisha Jones poses for a portrait in the bedroom left empty since her children moved out in May.
Despite complaints about black mold, mildew, cockroach infestations and the remnants of a recent fire, Tanisha Jones said very little has been done to improve conditions at the apartment building where she has raised her seven children.
