Have You Ever Tried Finding Certain Information Online? Have you ever tried to search for information on grants or scholarships, only to find websites that take you around in circles without ever providing the facts you’re looking for? It seems like these topics are buried from sight. I remember when I decided to return to college and was looking for government grant information. A friend of mine told me that single mother’s actually have quite an advantage where college is concerned. Even though I was in my late 20′s, I could return to school full-time and the government would pay my tuition. You can imagine my disappointment when I searched endlessly online for this information. It literally took me a week and a few phone calls to my local college to hunt down the information I was after. I did indeed return to school with a full grant. I even had money left over to help with my household bills! If I had been less diligent with my search efforts though, I may have missed a golden opportunity.
Have You Ever Tried Finding Certain Information Online? Next up, I remember trying to locate medical coverage for my children. My earnings were just past the allowable limit to receive Medicaid and I had heard about another state funded program, but I couldn’t locate the right information anywhere. Every website led to a dead end. I finally found what I was looking for, but once again it took me several days to find the first stitch of information. It was then that I decided to start my own website where all the right information for single mothers would be presented in clear and concise manner. Of course it’s not just me anymore. Now we have a team of single moms who conduct research, fact-check, and continue to provide fresh, relevant information and content.
