The SAFE Grant would me everything to my family! We are hard working parents with 2 small businesses that have suffered! We have 5 children. Unfortunately, I depend on the school so that I can work. I have a flexible work schedule but I need to be able to plan. Due to uncertainty, we now homeschool through SCAIHS. I am excited to be able to have a say in their education but it is a major financial burden. It is very expensive especially with having 5 grade school age. I am having to make the decision to let me personal small business go, which I have worked hard to build for 9 years now. I must close it and quit that job in order to school my children. I am not sure how I will make this all work financially on top of the heartbreak of closing my business. This grant would definitely lighten this load a little.
