• The Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) program allows seniors to convert their home equity into cash by using what is commonly called a reverse mortgage. The amount that may be borrowed is based upon the value of the home and the age of the borrower. The borrowed money is then advanced against the value of the home. Interest accrues on the outstanding loan balance, but the mortgage must not be paid until the home is sold or the borrower dies. For more information on HECM, please visit:

• Public Housing provides safe, decent rental housing to low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities.

    Hi. I’m a 55 year old Male. I’m on disability. I don’t smoke, drink or do drugs. I’m a Devout Christian. I don’t own a stereo so I don’t listen to loud music.I’m looking for help with rent, I only make 1068$ a Month! I prefer to stay away from Large cities that might have Gangs. I can afford one third of my monthly check. God Bless You and thank you.
