If you are planning on going to Ferris State University, try their family housing. They have very nice townhomes & they can roll your housing costs into your tuition. Also to lower housing costs you could be a townhouse manager. Good Luck & may God bless you.

Honesty. This website might help. http://www.ci.big-rapids.mi.us/Housing_Commission_Welcome.aspx

This year college loans might be very hard to come by, I would contact the school and start getting some type of assistance ASAP before others get all the money.

The first problem is the income. I would be making some strong effort to find employment as that will be the link between you and a home. I hope this isn't to harsh but that is reality. Reality is also the programs that are available for low income mothers. I would recommend the first stop be your local chamber of commerce. They have the pulse on the community and can help to direct you to temp employers, state programs, and alternative housing that will take into account your needs. Then I would recommend looking for an EcoBroker in the area once you are settled. An EcoBroker will be able to help you locate a home that is energy efficient and healthy. You will benifit from a home that costs less to operate with minimal upkeep. If you need more specific help and need some direction don't hesitate to call Team Green at 231-946-4404 or go online to http://www.greenhomestc.com.
