Hello I’m in the process of starting a small business I’m doing this on my own with no employees, I have been caring for a few elderly clients and have been told I’m so good at it that I should have a business, so that’s what I’m doing but it’s very hard doing it on a shoestring I could use a better vehicle, computer etc.. I have a name for my business and I’m in the process of getting licensed through the state to do this they consider it a personal care provider and I’m getting a permit through my town, I still want to be insured and bonded and more I want to provide a great service for seniors to help to keep them in their home instead of assisted living and such they should be able to remain in their homes with dignity and happiness that’s my belief I’m a very compassionate , trusting and friendly person so I know I can do this. There is definitely a need for this and I know there will always be people that need this service.And I will! Some of the services I provide are: Errands, transportation, companionship etc.. I just need some financial back up I’m looking for a grant a real one there’s so many scams out there! Any advice would be greatly appreciatedNovember 27, 2018 at 2:16 pm #287883
Thank you very much for reaching out and congratulations on the steps you have taken to help those around you and build a business doing it.
The best source for federal grants is grants.gov, their grants will always be legitimate.
You may also qualify for one of the many Minority Small Business Grants. that we cover.
Finally, if you haven’t found a solution I suggest reading over our Guide to Funding Your Startup and exploring some of the alternative options and resources available to you.
Best of luck,
