Melanie is a believer, has one daughter and four rescue Dogs. She was nearly homeless and was blessed to find a Landlord who understood her need to keep her dogs, and has agreed to rent to her for the time being. She is a hard working single mom, has been with the same company for 11 years, and desires to own a home. However, she makes too much money for any state help and medical insurance takes a huge chunk out of her paycheck. She is pre-approved to purchase a home, but no homes are available in a one income lower price range. She is the founder of ruffinmudder.com. In addition, Melanie hosts a yearly fundraiser to help raise funds for K-9 unit rescue shelters. Our housing program would be beneficial for her to find a home since a fixer-upper is all she can afford. The benefit is that her payments would be far less than rent. Currently she is working on credit repair.
