My name is Jessica Crum. I am on here desperately looking to raise money to help me with down payment assistance and closing cost on a house I am trying to buy. I am a mother of 1 biological kid, she is about to be 8 and is the love of my life. I have also been raising my god son who I have had since he was 1 year’s old and is now 5. Last year around this time I took in his 2 siblings because they was about to be placed in Foster Care because there mother was going through life struggles and personal problem. They are great kids. The girl is 8 and the boy is 6. I recently was forced to move from my last residence because the owner decided to sell the home because of personal reasons and I had no problem with that because things happen. So I moved and found a great home for the kids and we have been there for almost a year now and guess what, this seller also wants to sell. This time I was able to talk to the owner and ask if I could buy the home myself because renting cost a lot more then owning your own home. I currently pay 1850 in rent and numerous other bills and the mortgage if we get the home would only be half of that, which would open up more money for the kids to do more fun activities like sports and other fun things kids like to do.
I have tried looking into government assistance but they have either closed many programs that could help or the ones who can have no funds at this time and wont for many months down the line and we have to buy the house now because our lease will be up and somebody else will buy it and we will be forced to move.
My daughter and the children have even opened up their own little lemonade stands to help raise funds because they know about the situation and they don’t want to have to move again. Because when they was with their biological mom they has to move around all the time or stay in shelters.
I am asking everyone out there to be generous and please see if you can help my cause and help me raise the money needed for the down payment and closing cost. I have already been approved for the loan; we just need to come up with the money need upfront to close the deal. The owner of the house would help, but banks prohibit the funds come from the seller. But they can come in form of a gift, so I am asking anyone who reads my campaign to please help out anyway you can my family can stay in this house and build many memories together. Thanks for your time and even if you can’t make a monetary donation could you please share my campaign as well as pray for my family that we are able to raise the money. You can donate with this link
