Help please, Wanting to move my kids out of a bad neighborhood

Hello,

Im a single mom of 2 wonderful boys. I am currently living in CT and have been struggling to keep a roof over our heads for the last few years. I need to move out of CT soon. I am living in a bad area because it is all i can afford right now. My oldest son is a follower and im worried he will head down the wrong path if i stay here. I have 5 year old also who has a learning disability and needs special education. I have no family or friends in the area to help with childcare and cant afford to send them both while I work. I need to be able to spend more time with my kid before they are all grown up. I cant stand to see them unhappy anymore. I want them to grow up as happy functioning adults and blame myself because I can not be here with them more. My dad lives in PA and we never had a close relationship for whatever reason. My mom and dad were divorced when i was 2 and my father remarried and moved away. We are now trying to repair our relationship. He is helping to find a place for me to move in PA but is disabled and can not help me monetarily. I have found a few places that I am going to look at this weekend. I can buy a nice house out there for about half of what i pay here for rent. I was told today that I would need 3,000 including closing costs to buy a nice home for me and my 2 children. The mortgage payments will not be a problem because I have a support order from their dad who is very helpful to us. He and I are trying to work on our relationship also and he may join us in PA eventually if he can find suitable work out there. I have not been able to save because I was making just enough money to cover the rent and utilities here. I plan to attend community college in PA to finish my degree. I started a few years ago but was bedriddedn when I got pregnant with my son. I had a 4.0 GPA and was on the Presidents list. I will pay back anyone who chooses to help me as soon as I get settled. I will make a payment plan or whatever it takes to pay you back. If anyone here is in the situation to help my family I will appreciate it greatly. I just really want my kids to have a nice house in a safe neighborhood that I can afford. I dont mind working and attending school to better myself. I just need a little help to get me started. Thank you for reading my story and thank you to anyone who decides to help our family I will never forget and will definitely pay it forward as soon as im on my feet.

I am a 30 yr old single mother of 2 residing in Connecticut. I am currently working as a casino dealer , very odd hours..my shift is 5am -1pm. and only scheduled 2-3 days a week. I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome ( yes it is a very real sickness) which makes it very hard to function outside of home. I also have recently been told that I have Spina Bifida (don't know why it wasn't found when I was born ??!!) I would like to be able to work from home and spend more time with the kids. I dont want to have to apply for disability because I would like to have my own little business and have things to do.  I also would like to own my own home one day. Im trying to keep my hopes up that I can make this happen. I have been renting for the last 10 years and I would love to have my own home one day. Any information on how to buy a home with not so good credit or any grant programs would be greatly appreciated

Thanks Ahead of time!!
