Alabama has many helpful programs for homeowners!

Low income homeowners nationwide have a hard time meeting their mortgage payments. If you are at risk of foreclosure because you’re struggling to make your housing payment, these programs can help you!

Hardest Hit Alabama is a foreclosure prevention program that assists homeowners who are facing temporary financial hardships. You may be able to receive up to $60,000 in assistance through their programs. The program is reporting closed as of March 2021, but it is not clear if this is a permanent closure or simply for the remainder of the 2021 year.

Housing counseling agencies can assist you with foreclosure counseling, home repair education and other essential services! The HUD website can provide you with contact information for agencies in Andalusia, Auburn, Birmingham, Cullman, Decatur, Florence, Greensboro, Greenville, Hayneville, Huntsville, Jasper, Millbrook, Mobile, Montgomery, Moulton, Ozark, Prichard, Russellville, Rutledge, Sheffield, Troy, Tuscaloosa and Union Springs.

Hey, I’m disabled have been since I was 24. I’m now 54. Managed to get a used Mobile Home. The older one was really bad. I need help to get a heat pump. Between Winter being cold and using a electric heater, well, it’s cold. Between Summer being so hot I managed to get a 5000 B.T.U. Window air conditioner. It don’t hardly cool just my bedroom. I’m getting worse in health. They have me listed on standby for home care. Medical is: Fibromyalgia, Disc Deteriorating “ already have 2 in upper back, 3 in middle of back, and 4 in lower back.”, pituitary mass, carpal tunnel in both arms, have stage 4 none-alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver, and cataracts in both eyes. It’s nearly impossible to get help. I don’t want money, I just want everything fixed and have heat and air. Even with all this I refuse to let go of Jesus. I prayed then was lead to go to uTube and search and I found you. I have been trying for almost 2 years. I’m tired nothing has been even remotely easy with any of this. I know it’s allot, I’m just at the end of my rope hanging on by threads. I need solid help without the run around. So any doors you can open so that all this be done I would really be grateful for.

May all of yours be Blessed Thank you.
