As most of you know Ive been on my own since I was a little girl after my mom died I struggled a ton and acted out like crazy luckily I had some cousins who looked after me and tried to help me. At the time I had a drug problem which I have since gotten clean ( over 11 years now! ) and had my son when I was 17. I have made Marin county my home, and have had to hustle like crazy to afford the cost of living here. I met who I know now is the love of my life, after kissing a frog or two to get my first three babies. As many of you know my oldest was with his dad half the time but recently started living with us full time. We had baby faith a few months ago and things have been very challenging the last year  . We made a rental resume https://docs.google.com/document/d/1X1018DRJsPz_wgAbG9rVKUiQKNDd3viiQYHFZv3_EmA/edit?usp=sharing and have been looking at different opportunities and are on every waiting list for housing. Recently I got the best ever email that my name had come up for a lottery for purchasing a BMR here in Marin county which is a below market rate home. I have been scrambling around trying to get things together to get preapproved. I may need some support with closing costs and a larger downpayment due to some dings on my credit which happened while I was pregnant with baby faith and in and out of the hospital I missed a few payments on my damn target red card and BOOM. I went from having wonderful credit to not so great. I am almost mortified to ask for some help but I'll be damned if I let the opportunity pass us by without trying EVERYTHING I can think of (without stealing of course lol ) because becoming a homeowner would stabilize our familys situation and give my teenager his own room, something Ive never been able to do... I am two months away from a degree and am completing a mentor ship in the wealth management industry currently. 

This home, the Marin Housing Authority is giving 10,000 towards downpayment to help the potential buyer and I have the #1 spot on the list. I will attach emails with details and photos and such should you be interested and want to know the specifics. I figure if there was no covid, we wouldve had a real wedding and then yall would give cash if you could anyway so this isnt that far of a stretch right ? 

I have NO expectations at the possibility of help I understand shit is mad hard to navigate life right now and we all have our own struggles. However if you are able I would be forever grateful for some help and will pay it forward. I'd like to think that I've offered and made myself available when anyone has ever needed me and have spent most of life working for next to nothing because I believe in helping others. 
( I choose not to make this more public on my page because of my ex husband) 

also if you cant help I believe in the power of prayer and would love all the warm vibes if cannot help financially 

Stay safe and all the love and blessings to you, 

Christina & family
