Hear from just a few of the many people The Arkansas Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) has helped.
“If you could see my tears through this message!! I am a single mother of two boys and life hit me unexpectedly. I am humbled to have the peace of mind that my two very small boys have a shelter. I thank God for His Grace over my life, that He would bring resources like Arkansas HAF. I am forever grateful for you all. God bless you abundantly. Psalm 46:1-3”
“I am a single 53 yr old female, a sole proprietor of a hair and nail studio for 33 years in the small community of Hiwasse Arkansas. I earn a less than modest income in my trade and I’ve managed to sustain a simple life although balancing on the cusp of maintaining/ loss is always lingering in my mind and Covid wiped me out. I have a little land I purchased in 1988 with a little house I built myself, where I raised my daughter and grow a little food. My home and business are all I have. The assistance I received in March of 2022 saved my home and spirit. The uncertainty stemming from the pandemic, the loss of income, uncontrollable inflation along with the social dynamics affecting business trade created a sense of helplessness a situation I just couldn’t fix myself. The Mortgage assistance provided to me helped me keep my home, and ease the emotional toll thus enabling me to stay focused and be present & clear-minded in order to operate my business effectively and be strong for my community. I’m so proud to be an American. Thank you.”
“It helped me out so much and allowed me to be back in good standing with my mortgage servicer. I am very grateful.”
“I was about to lose my home because of COVID and my husband’s death. I would have been homeless without this help.”
“This assistance kept me from going into foreclosure and losing my home. I am greatly appreciative.”
“Since I first came down with Covid, it has been a battle that many times, I just knew I would lose. Your help has changed my world, and my wife’s and my little grandson’s life. I will never be able to show my gratitude for this blessing.”
“During the pandemic, everything changed. This assistance allowed me to have peace of mind instead of worrying about how I was going to be able to get everything paid on time.”
“Without this assistance, I probably would not have been able to catch up on my payments, and I could have lost my home.”
“I was in a very difficult situation financially and would not have been able to keep my house without the Arkansas Homeowner’s Assistance Fund. God had provided a ram in the bush. For this reason, I am ever so grateful. Thank you.”
“It’s a saddening and frustrating situation when you’re struggling to make ends meet and there doesn’t seem to be any relief coming your way. This assistance saved my sanity.”
“We were in a hardship due to a job loss and would have lost our home if it weren’t for this assistance.”
“The assistance we received saved us from losing our home.”
The Arkansas Homeowner Assistance Fund is administered by the Arkansas Development Finance Authority.
