CrowdFunding promotion A Home To Call Our Own

I'm switching up my entire campaign.. Why because yes my dream is photography, but the reason for my dream is to make my children proud of me.. I can't do that when I when I don't even have a home to call my own..  in fact I have never had a home to really call home... I live in the Barnhart area of Missouri, my two oldest daughters go to Windsor High School, and my baby is in the Windsor school district just goes to Freer the elementary part of it . I lived at Cardinal Glennon with her two years, she has had 10 brain surgeries .. and ongoing chemo since she was 4 years old.. I have lived from friend to friends houses... this is extremely embarrassing for me to tell the world.. but I have no other choice.. I have tried hud.. but because of a misdemeanor drug charge in 2009 was denied...when I have graduated drug court in 2011 .. I am literally at my wits end and no clue what to do anymore.. I just want a place to be able to call home without having them leave their school district.  Any help of any kind would be more than appreciated. This is extremely hard for me to share...but harder not to. I love each and every one of you more than I could tell you.  Any help would be so much appreciated.  A home to call our own.
