Single mothers are unsung heroes. As a single mom, you have the responsibility of taking care of all affairs regarding yourself and kid(s), which is no small feat because, in a typical family setting, the mother and father share the burden.
The utility bills to be paid for, the tuition fees, the money for upkeep and the essentials, weighed on a single adult. This guide will give some insight into some of these financial grants and aids that are put in place by public and private bodies to ease the burden of being a single mom in Louisville.

Foreclosure prevention and mediation in Louisville
This is an assistance program that is jointly pioneered by Louisville and Jefferson county. It is common knowledge that people, in a bid to get a loan put up their homes as collateral, and if they default on paying up, the lender comes along to foreclosure. This occurrence has happened one too many times in Louisville to arouse the intervention of the city’s council to set aside a body that intercedes for these debtors to help them strike a deal with the lenders to prevent the eventual foreclosure of the houses.
