Our Home Opportunity

I am a US Navy vet and very recent college graduate.   As soon as I graduated, my family and I moved into a different part of our state to start on new paths.  We live in an old RV parked in a family member's driveway.  We had hoped to purchase a home in about a year after I settled into my teaching job here but an unusual opportunity presented itself rather suddenly.  There is a house we've admired for sometime that has become available and wont be for long.  It has some good history in our community and is just right for my small family.  Trouble is, we have to raise 50k to make it happen and being just out of college during a national health crisis has prevented us from doing that on our own. 

           This fundraiser will benefit my daughter, my other half, and myself by allowing us to get a home.  Funding raised will go directly towards the home and raising the funds as soon as able will help make it happen.  

          Over the past four years we've endured a lot.  As a family we have been hungry, we had a brief period with no where to live, and struggled to have enough coming in for even fuel.  Having a home to call our own will make the journey and sacrifice feel worth it.  It will mean a lot for us to have a real roof of our own over our heads.  We appreciate all your support, thank you everyone!
