Talking to a local loan officer or mortgage broker in your area might uncover some opportunities.
Although some down payment assistance programs have gone away, perhaps there's something locally that you've missed which a mortgage professional in the Plymouth area can help you find.
It sounds like something's changed for you that you're trying to correct since you're already there and you like where you are.

Due to the presence of the Mall, these areas tend to have an active Police presence, and thus would be considered safe.

I hope that helps.
