My brother, located in Rochester, NY, just informed me that his children, 10 year old boy, and 13 year old girl, live in their mother's boyfriend's parent's house and are basically restricted to living in the basement. They share the living space together, and that's where they both sleep. Their mother doesn't work and has no way of earning money to better their living situation, so she's playing the game of keeping her children away from her boyfriend's parents, to make sure they stay out of the homeowner's way and not get kicked out of the home. I feel like my niece should have her own room and space, and I also feel like it's cruel to the children to keep them in the basement all the time. Is there anything I can do to help their situation? I feel like there's a law being broken
