Even with credit problems and limited income from social security, the Affordable Community Living Veterans Affordable Housing Program was able to help me. I only had $500 to put down but received $5,000 in down payment assistance and a move-in rent subsidy until I get back on my financial feet.
— Peter K., Korean War Veteran
We qualified for the program and given another year or so we will be able to adjust some of our living expenses and pick up some temporary employment to cover the difference.
Thank you Affordable Community Living for rescuing us from financial disaster.
