Life in the Chicago projects is never easy, However, the Evans family never gives up trying to make the best of things. While Florida and James struggle to provide for their family, their sons J.J., an aspiring painter, Micheal, the undying political crusader, causing trouble while their sister, Thelma, stands between them as the voice of reason. Living in the same building were Willona Woods, Florida's best friend from High School who provided support, love and gossip and Nathan Bookman, the overweight janitor who gave them grief and was the butt of alot of fat jokes, especially Willona who often referred to him as Buffalo Butt or Booger.

Although the show was a spin-off from Maude (1972), there were no actual references to that show or its characters. On that series, Florida was Maude Findlay's housekeeper in suburban New York, and her husband Henry was employed as a firefighter. On this show, Florida and her husband James live in Chicago and there is no mention of their previous jobs, James ever going by the name Henry, or having ever lived in New York. In fact, Florida and neighbor Willona Woods are longtime friends, and are believed to have lived in Chicago for several years. However, in one episode, Florida mentioned that she was a maid.
