I really don't know where to start. It would sound like an over dramatic statement if I said something like "My Fathers House saved my life and kept my family from being torn apart" but in a very real way, they did. I had no hopes for a job when we (my ten month old son, his mother, and I) were evicted from our apartment. No relative or friend would take us in as a group and we were determined to stay together. We were told about My Fathers House and had a hard time believing it... it sounded too good to be true. But, thank God, it wasn't! We were treated with kindness and respect. No one EVER made me feel like I was being looked down on. I felt real love from everyone from the Exective Director to my Growth Leader ( who happened to be the E.D.'s husband :D ) to all of the staff and volunteers... they all REALLY wanted me and my family to succeed. When you are totally down and out, most of the time you really don't want/need a hand out. In most cases, what would be best is a hand up. At My Fathers House, that's exactly what we got.

Tell your story here and help others understand this charity My family was fortunate enough to have lived at the new building of My Father's House for about 4 months. The icing on the cake of instability was losing our housing situation in an unfortunate situation with our housemate. We spent about 3 months couch-surfing among relatives (me, my wife, and our 4 kids). I was still managing to hold down my full time job all the while. One day my wife mentioned something about this "father's house" place. I was willing to go see what they were about, so we set up an appointment with Sam. As our luck would turn out, it was probably the best thing to happen to us in YEARS. We are now over a year removed from our stay, and while the marriage is still on thin ice, we are definitely better off as people for having stayed at My Father's House. And as I swore to Cathe on the day we left, I will ALWAYS find some way or another to help out the shelter. And you should too! They just opened up their new apartment complex, and so the needs are greater than ever. But the help is burgeoning too. Cathe, Dan, Dougie, Heather, all the Staff, I love you guys and I won't ever forget what you've done for me and my family. Don S.

The important part in getting such loans is to find out the offer which suits you the best, you don’t want to be paying more for the same amount when you get it for less. A lot of companies have multiple plans for people with bad credit history. Once you have a basic information about them, its is best to get in touch with them regarding your case. There will be many who do not get into such business, there is no point getting in touch with them. They have special terms and conditions for people with a bad credit history. The boat financing industry is very aggressive and we value each and every customer. A direct debit allows the lender to take money from your secure account on a predetermined date.
