I'd really appreciate some help.

I'm a single mother of 2 daughters, and I'm looking for some type of grant or assistance in getting a home. if you know anything I'd really like some help.

Thank you,

Shelli

Shelli --

I was just reading in the Ford Foundation's newsletter that they have committed a lot of money to affordable housing -- not based on family composition, but income and need. Perhaps you can access their website and see if there are local resources you might tap into.

There is also Habitat for Humanity -- availability in most states. I don't know that your single mother status would be the reason you would qualify -- though being a female home owner should be a bonus and also head of household can't help. Good luck and if you find something do let us know so we can share with others,
