My husband and I purchased a Historic home build in 1885 in 2005.  Our plans were grand; to restore, remodel and open a bakery café boarding house in a small town called Myrtle Creek Oregon.  We had to put a new foundation that cost about 40k, and a new roof with a cost of 26k and new electrical and plumbing.  Our money is gone, we now have bad credit and cannot get a loan.  I have tried to get the home registered as historic so we could get grants but were denied.  Our marriage is now over and I am living here with my daughter and her children.  The house has no heat and no kitchen.  We need help.  We have 100k equity, but cannot get to the money.  Any suggestions, ideas or connections would be appreciated.

I am 18 years old living in Chicago. I was recently kicked out of a ladys house that I was staying at because of problems on Thanksgiving. My mother has just gotten out of jail in Phoenix for drug abuse, and I do not know my father. I am staying at a friends house for now but I am only aloud to stay for the rest of the school year, which ends in 5 months. I am a high school student with a minimum wage paying after school job, which just cut my hours to less then 10 a week. Is there any grovernment help out there for someone like me?

I am a  disabled man with my family. In 2007 my wife and I were in need of a new home , our old home was falling down and I was awaiting disability to be approved. It finally came and we found a mobile home dealer who was more than happy to help us.Long story short.......... They stated that we had a loan , we placed some money down,  the home that we picked out was a little over our budget but, they stated that they could work around that.They tore our old home down , moved this home up and set it on our property, told us to move in and they would finish around us,,, I asked the question .... don't I need to sign my loan?  The dealer stated , oh you're fine we'll get this done and sign off .... nope. they closed the doors on the company, and we found out that we did'nt even have a loan.There is a floor plan company...who from what I understand has the rights to this home, due to the fact that, the dealer signed off their rights on assets. ok.Now we find out that , there was a loan...so to speak, but it was for a repo and not a new home. The amount was not evan near the amount needed for this home.The dealer had lied to the bank and stated that we were to get a repo home, when in fact.......we got a new one. so I contact the floor plan people(sugar daddy so to speak for the dealer) and ask what the deal was , he stated that the dealer went out of buisness and that they now have controling interest in our home. well............ we never signed any loan papers, just an informal kind of purchase agreement , in which was never signed by the dealer,and no contract to the floor plan people. I did'nt evan know they existed....so, the dealer,  took a brand new home, and drug it to our property ,and set it up and said goodbye.... of course it was not finished completly so I had to try to finish it up myself. We have been trying for two years to get someone to pick this loan up and to no avail.. We have our own acreage and it is free and clear.I have offered to pay the floor plan people payments but they wont take them.They say that they want me to pay in full, or they will take possesion , but what do you do when you have tried to work it out and they  wont, I didnt put a gun to anyones head... I feel that we were placed in a mess.By a crook ! I think that although they are entitled to a compensation  but ..go after the one who took advantage of a family and drug it up here without securing a loan first.

any ideas?

I am a part-time medical student, I am in a nine-month course. I am looking for a way to keep my rent paid up, and to just help me get through school. I don't need much. I would just like to be able to keep rent paid and maybe be able to buy a cheap car. As of right now, I am taking the bus, and it is hard to find a job that will work around my schedual, at the same time, it is hard to have time for both work, study and school when the bus easily eats hours of my day. If anyone knows of a grant, or low-intrest loan, please let me know.

Reply to Nancy13---You are right about programs for the diabled, there are many of them and you came to the right place to find the right programs for your needs. I will list site names of some of our aidpage angels whom have spent weeks and months doing research finding grants and resources for those that come to aidpage for help and advice. If you don't see their names on the main page just type in the name you want in the google window at the top of the page and don't forget to click on aidpage under the window before you click search.Names: WHOKNEW---Friendshelpingfriends---Elaine of TSA---Soulight---Ricardog---and Anonymous40784---Now these are just a few of our very best resource and grant info pages and you will have to do the searching part. Some of these sites have resources listed by state so you have your work cut out for you but I know you will find what you need and when you do it would be very nice if you could thank the person whose site you found the info that helped you. Our aidpage angels work very hard and are not paid but a thankyou is so appreciated. Goodluck and Godspeed. Sincerely sheshe030

I am in my 40s, on SS disability and SSI. I have recently decided to purchase a home in KY. I know there are programs for people like me, but can not find any sources. Any info anyone can help me with  would be greatly appreciated. I know there are government grants and loans out there but after several phone calls and hours on the net still haven't located anything.

I am an Active Duty service member and I will be PCSing soon.  I have jsut bought a house and will be loosing alot of money if I try to sell it now.  When I get to my new duty station I will have to pay rent on top of a mortgage payment.  This coupled with the fact that my wife will be out of work, will leave us in a bind.  Is there a grant or something we can do to insure that we keep our house?
