Help my Family of 7 buy our first home

Organized by: Sheila Van Kanegan

My family has gone through some rough times. We survived a summer homeless in Milwaukee, 2 homeless shelters, and our fair share of crummy rentals. We have 5 children, three of which are under age 5. We homeschool. I work hard as a full time C.N.A. to support my family. I will have $10K to put towards the purchase of a home, but am needing at least $20K total. The house we live in now is a rundown very small 2 bedroom rental. I want to stop wasting my hard earned money on rentals and buy a larger home with a yard. I have seen homes with a $500 or less monthly mortgage that are 4 bedroom homes, perfect for my large family. I also plan to return to school within a year to earn my associates degree and hopefully, better income. I have 4 boys and a daughter so we really do need 3+ bedrooms which is extremely difficult to find as a rental, and if you do they are usually very expensive. By paying for a home with a low monthly mortgage, we can afford a larger home for less. I want to give my children a secure home without worry of one day having to move again. We have had to move a lot and we are more than ready to settle down. Please help us make our dream a reality! Every dollar and cent helps a little even if its only a dollar or two you can afford. Thanks to everyone in advance and God bless!
