Melissa’s Dope Philly Home
I plan to buy my first home by myself in Philadelphia this fall. Journalism opportunities moved me around the globe for over a decade. Now I want to create roots in the city where I was born.

For the past year I’ve been saving for a down payment and taking first-time home buying courses. But I need some extra help from my community to cross the finish line.

Any amount you can donate toward my down payment and closing costs will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for helping me make my dream come true!
