Currently 2016. Although we are still active in helping senior homeowners we are no longer trying to make government listen to common sense approaches to addressing the needs of millions of seniors who have fought wars, paid taxes and mortgages only to find themselves victims of the economic meltdown.
OUR HISTORY. On March 20, 2009 Help Senior Homeowners, A Non-Profit Counseling Service, Inc. was incorporated with the sole mission of stopping foreclosures on senior homeowners who were short on equity to qualify for a reverse mortgage.

What We Did. We sent over
4,000 hand-signed letters by mail to government officials
and big banks pleading with them
to do something to help our senior citizens facing foreclosure.
Personalized letters were sent to President Obama and all his staff,
Barney Frank and all his staff, all State Senators and Members of
Congress in every State.

severely cut into the incomes of millions of older Americans who
have already retired.
The banks and the seniors would then be in a better position to recover all their money when the market stabilizes. It would have been a winning situation for both parties.
