More Info

My husband and I have been married for 16 years. We have 3 sons ages 13, 11 and 8. I am a Nurse and my husband is the Director of Community Engagement at a non-profit social service agency. We each have part time jobs either on the weekends or evenings. We do not receive any government benefits. student loans, past medical bills and the increased cost of living has not allowed for us to save. We do not go on fancy vacations, buy expensive clothes or enjoy any luxuries. We live simply, take our kids to the parks, play lots of sports, games at home. We do not receive any financial assistance from family as most people do when buying a new home. At this point, we have been renting for 16 years. We are almost 40yrs old and still can not save money. our kids deserve a home, a backyard, to live in a community where they have friends and be proud to invite them over. I am so tired of working so hard and not having anything to show for it. We are confident that we can pay a monthly mortgage however saving for the down payment seems an impossible task without help. Please consider helping my family. I would be happy to discuss anything further if needed.
