Hi, I am a single mom trying to get some help with financing my education as well as 3teens at home trying to go to college. We don't have transportation and I currently don't have a job. I go to the University but need grants to get me through school and help with home needs. Any help would be sincerely appreciated.
I am currently doing my masters online through loans but would like to be able to get some kind of grant to purchase a home and car. I have moved out of the projects because my rent was raised eventhough I was not working, I was attending school at UNCP. I have since graduated from there but have found no work. Volunteering does not pay bills and jobs are scarce in this part of the state. I am a single mom and have 5 children, of which 3 still live at home. I am in desperate need of funds. I had a car but the tranny went out and I cannot afford to fix it. There has been a lot of struggle for me and my kids to try to get to school and appointments.I still have bills but am currently living at my mothers house which is only 2 bdrms. It is hard to function in such a small domain. I know there are so many others worse off than we are, although our living standard is below poverty level. Our life was disrupted five years ago when I found out my then husband was molesting my girls, and pretty much brainwashed my son, so we were forced to change the route of our future. It's really a long sad story but we have tried to rise up from that tragedy and move on. I hope funding will come soon. I have applied for every scholarship I can because a house is not all I need. I am only one of many low income people trying to get an education and make a better life for my family. My kids are doing ok but are not mentally stable enough to make it on their own. They are still going through therapy. I would love to move from this part of the state in order to secure an available job within the court system elsewhere. With no job, no money to do what I need to do. I need a new start. Can someone please help us get on the right foot????
