Singe mom needing relocation advice

I'm hoping someone out there can give me some advice or direction. I am needing to relocate to the Bogalusa area. It doesn't have to be in Bogalusa specifically but very close. I'm originally from TN so I haven't the slightest clue about the area or surrounding areas. I've accessed google maps and I haven't had much luck finding nearby cities on craigslist to search housing postings.

I'm needing to move fairly soon and it will be my 3 year old and myself. I'm a full-time student and will be working full-time so I will definitely need to be near a good daycare facility and in a safe neighborhood. Please someone tell me this exists. I'm on a tight budget and am trying not to exceed monthly rent of 450-500. We can make do with a studio type or efficiency apartment or simply a one-bedroom.

Any suggestions you can forward my way would be greatly appreciated!

I would say DON'T move to Bogalusa. The quality of life you may want for yourself as well as your son will not be found in or around Bogalusa. The school system is deplorable & elected officials as well as a substantial amount of residents there is not doing anything to change it. They complain but nothing gets you may want to move to the St. Tammany area (Covington, La)...which is approximately 30 minutes from Bogalusa. Regardless, in whatever you decide to do Put God First. Much Wishes & Blessings to you and your son.
