Home for my Family
Organized by: Jeannie Colleen
As a single mom who grew up in poverty, I am trying to raise funds for a down payment on our own home. My three sons and I are struggling, working part time, trying to survive. The rent takes most of our income, so it's hard to get ahead with no money left to save. Our landlord wants to raise the rent even more. It's been very difficult trying to find a place that will take our pets ( a dog and cats). I found it would be cheaper to purchase our own home. I can get a loan, but do not have the funds for the required down payment of $3000.00 plus whatever closing costs there would be. We would be very grateful to any donations to help us get our own home and therefore start to get out of poverty.
