Is there any programs for single mom with son 16 and son 18 going to college so I don't pay high rent in an apartment?

A realtor was telling me about a mortgage broker who could lend on a credit score down to 600 or 605. Who are they and how can I find them?
Search for a local mortgage broker who handles government financing programs like FHA. You probably won't see FHA listed as the use of the term is being limited.
