    I currently live with my inlaws and i dont have enough money to purchase a home. I would really like my own place with my husband that i can call home. The economy is hard right now and financially i know i how difficult it is for me to purchase a home. I hope that this comment can be deeply considered. I do not have any kids but i hope that in the near future i can have my own home to start a family. This is my dream…

  3. L.L. says

    Because me and my animals are now homeless due to the economy and other circumstances beyond my control. The death of a loved one and so on.

  6. Leslie says

    I am 31 years old and barely can afford food on the table and clothes on my back, but I get by. Growing up it has always been a dream of mine to have a home i can call my own, I never dream of big fancy materialistic things, I just want something clean and decent, having a home i can call my own with help me out in so many ways. I am currently a full time student, I wont graduate for another 4 yrs, I am currently engaged but we can’t really afford a wedding on either income. Our house is falling apart, we have really big spiders and roaches that live with us because of all the cracks in our home, it really is stressful because i don’t feel comfortable in my home from being afraid if a bug is gonna crawl on me or bite me, owning a home is the biggest dream come true that i could ask for. Thank you:-)

  8. Courtney says

    My husband and I have been “homeless” for the past 4 years. We have 3 beautiful little girls God has blessed us with and I really would like a place for us and our 3 girls to be able to call “home”. Im glad my girls are still little and they dorn’t know the struggle my husband and I go through, they don’t really know what’s going on, they just live everyday with a smile on their face. We have 2 achers (that we hope to some day have a home on) with a $200.00 mobile home on it that is not in a livable condition, and we do not have the money or time to fix it good enough to live in. It’s been hard hopping from family memeber to family member and I am greatful that they have been there for us but we could really use our own space and I know they would like to have their space back as well.
    God Bless

  9. says

    I am a single mother with two children. I am unemployed but went back to school full time. I would never be able to qualify on my own for a home. We live in a bad area with high crime. Not safe at all. I look out the window to see if my car is ok. I can’t leave the apartment without a family member in the home or else it will get robbed again. I have an alarm system and boultted the door with so many locks. Hope you can help. We really really need it.


  10. Larissa says

    I’m a mother of one with another on the way. I am currently unemployeed. My husband has a job although it is only a minimum wage job of 7.70/hour. We live in a small apartment complex in our area. The complex is very well known for drugs. My husband who is a RECOVERING drug addict really out of all of us needs more then any thing to be in a different area, concidering we walk out our front door and there is a drug dealer. my husband has been clean for over a year now. we currently live off of welfare assistance (food stamps and medical card) If we had a place of our own we wouldnt need the governement assistance. we both have student loans in default so we wouldnt qualify for any loans to get our own home… nor can we go back to school to get a better job to pull our selfs out of debt. If we had our own home we would also be able to pay those loans back we would be able to live on our own feet and not have to call and ask family members for help when we are low on money, although it is very appriciated I know they dont have much to help either. several of the apartment units have been infested with bed bugs, roaches ect. we are lucky enough to not have any of those issues yet, but that will only last for a matter of time. most of the kids in this area grow up to live the “thug life”, and I worry for my son to grow up here. I can teach my son and guide him to choose to stand out and be different, but in the end its his choice and he will live how he wants to live. I fear if he does grow up here he will join the wrong crowd and get into things i cant prevent him from doing. our apartment has been broken into several times, even though we dont have much! our car is falling apart and soon enough we wont have transportation to take our kids where they need to go. my husband would still be able to get to work because he works about five minuets away. I no we probably dont deserve this home any more then anyone else who has entered for this contest, but I can say we would be so greatful and appriciated if we were picked to win this contest, and would finally be able to begin our lives!

  19. jennefher t. jordan says

    hello, good day madam/sir… i wish to win a house for the very good reason that i want a place to call my home for my whole family. it is hard too hard to live on a place that does not really belong to you. our house is just an infrastructure that can be remove anytime, any moment. that’s all i wish for to have a real home.

  20. CS Crawford says

    I am a single grandmother raising 3 grandchildren and supporting my daughter through a full time college degree program.We have never owned our own home and as I seed into the next generation and beyond, I believe owning a home is the best foundation to establish a solid headstart for my children, grandchildren and theirs. I have a fixed income with substandard credit ratings which preclude me from being a qualified buyer.I desire to own a home for the stability of my grandchildren whom I believe have the potential to be greater than what they have been given to deal with. Winning a home for us means winning a future!

  21. Mary Reese says

    To not be put out in the street due to divorce at 60 years old. To get back what should of been my children’s inheritance that is being taken away by someone other then family. This would in deed be a blessing for all and for years to come!!!!

  22. Lisa E.Scott says

    I would like to win a home. Because we are in need of one. Just to let you know a little about me. My name is Lisa Scott and i have all ways wanted to own my own home.I been through a lot in my life i was homeless at one time. I had two children who are grown now. I had to take of of my mother who is now dead. I have a husband who is much older than i am. And i have a liver problem and other health problems. The only thing i ever wanted in life was to some day own a home of my very own. And to live for christ. Well i am living for Christ. The only thing i need now is a home. The house i live in right now needs a lot of work to it. I am renting it. I thank god for a roof over my head.But just knowing that one day you can own something and to know that no one can put you out of it is a dream. I pray to god i win this home. And thanks for letting me tell my story

  23. Stacey McCullough says

    I would like to be able to keep my family together. I have myself and 2 of my children living with me and my father. My mother and my oldest child live next door, and my sister and her 3 children live with her. We stay so close together to help my mother with my oldest child that has Cerebrel Pelsey and many other medical problems, and to help my youngest sister with her oldest child who has a brittle bone disease. We would rather be living together but we can not find anything big enough for all of us or anyone that is willing to rent one house to 10 people. So we are all living in one apartment complex, but in different apartments.

  24. Deborah says

    I have been put off work for a year now by my Dr. and I am getting evicted soon! I have health problems, and cervical cancer! I would love to have a new home! I am really in need of a home right now..to where I could own it! I would take it even if it was a small shack! As long as I knew I want going to be on the street! I would be most grateful and happiest!

  25. Michaelena Munk says

    I would like to win a home for my son and I. Going from owning house while married then having to move and start over because divorced . Life change has been hard to recover the stuff lost do to split. Winning a house like this would be a blessing. Thank you!

      • INGRID KATES says

        Thank you so very much for blessing someone in your life time. That means a lot… to bless someone. I have always said that if God should bless me; I would want to be a blessing to someone else. Passing it on. So whenever you did it.. I say thank you because so many people are selfish with their blessings. You have blessed someone in your lifetime , I say may God continue to bless you .

  26. veronica says

    I am a mother of four beautiful kids. I am a single parent leaving off my son ssi check. He was born with spinal biefda. He had surgery when he was a baby. And he lost his hearing also. So i got to stay home and take care of them so i wish i can own my own house so i can i call home. Living with my dad with kids is a problem cause his house it’s not good for my son health.

  27. says

    My husband sick with chronic illness as well as pancreatic cancer we currently have upstairs and it’s getting to hard to go up and down the stairs for us . Been in our home for 21 years and this home needs to much work , would love to enjoy the rest of our lives in a single story home and it’s much easy to clean one floor , god bless sue

  28. Tina Gunderman says

    I was reading a lot of the responses , and it seems a lot of people share my same story , which is horrible to know that their are so many single mothers out there god bless, its not an easy road . My electric got shut out a few days ago and my son has ashma.I amworking a part time job as a waitress that I despise , and finally I got back to school. So the difference in my life story is I appreciate my hardships, I diffidently believe it made me , and kids who they are today. Getting this home would be a new start for us. A dream come true. It would give me a boost to my future , and allow my faily a new fresh start . I greatly appreciate tis opportunity , and hope that my family will get to enjoy the comfort of living in such a beautiful home.

  29. savanna says

    Well I’m not gonna lie…I’m 34yrs old living with my mom..sad but true. Have three boys, hoping i have room for all of them but it very hard. When job is paid just to pays our bills not to effort to buy any house. Try helping my parent with their rent and for myself as well with the cost of living nowaday is very expensive. They’re old, if helping my parent to have them try so hard just to come up with rent again that’s like a dream come true. wise then i glad to stays to help them. That’s what I’ll do because they raised me a better person to keep trying hard to help each other. If i ever win the house, and never have to pays rent that would helps alot. I never actually put picture up at anywhere I’ve lived in cause i feel that I’m gonna own this house anyway why waste the time to put it up for. I wish to own a house one day so maybe that day I’ll put a picture frame up and feel happy that this picture will never come down cause its my wall forever. I hope i win this dream house one day so i can be have my own family tree..much love savanna
