Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

The first thing to do is to create a non-profit corporation in Florida via the Secretary of State's office. That will give you non-profit status from the state.....but you will also have to apply to the IRS to become a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit (you'd need an accountant for that).

Once you get set up, you can seek out the assistance of a grant writer, such as this one: http://www.agwa.us , to try and find grants that your endeavor would fit in.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
