At Shirley's Temple, we will look to provide financial assistance to single parents looking to obtain affordable housing in the Tampa Bay area. As a nonprofit, we have created an in depth program design that will provide the structure for each single parent that we partner with. We believe that having a healthy home environment is essential to the development of the family. It is important that we do whatever it takes to help each single parent that goes through our program maintain or achieve a healthy home environment.
To assist, inspire, and lend a helping hand to single parents desiring to provide their family with a healthy home environment.
It has always been the founder's dream to start Shirley Temple. He comes from a single parent household, and witnessed first hand the financial struggles that his mother faced. His mother always had the dream to buy a house for her daughter, and son while they were young. However, she lacked the financial resources in order to do so. It is now Dan's mission to help single parents like his mom achieve their dream of buying their first home.
Prior to enrolling in the program, each single parent will have to complete a screening process. The screening process will consist of a short questionnaire that will help with getting to know them and their background. We will also look to meet with them to go over the program, and the pivotal role that they will play in it. The reason being, is that we want to make sure the single parent is dedicated, and can see themselves completing the program. We will treat this as a partnership, so there will be a lot of work and effort needed from both sides. There will be three phases to the program, which we will describe next.
**Please note that funding will play a huge role in providing the necessary resources (i.e. subsidies, down payment assistance, etc.).**
Phase 1: Subsidies
Phase 2: Financial Literacy Course
Phase 3: Home Ownership
