CAR REPAIRS & PLACE TO CALL HOME
Saundra Lowry - Area IV Agency on Aging
Nov. 8, 2016 - In September, a woman named Jane* came to visit with me about some possible help with car repairs. In talking with her I discovered that she and her husband had moved in with his ill father to care for him. He died at the beginning of the year and the home was being sold. They had to find a place to live so they moved into an apartment in march while being on the waiting list for Section 8 rental assistance.
Their income is $1,000 a month and the rent is $800. She has been looking for a job, but because she is a senior it becomes more difficult to find work. Area IV had some funding to help with the car repairs so we paid for the work that needed to be done. Shortly after that she called to thank me and asked if we possibly had any apartments available. I told her that I would send Sue Skinner an email to inquire. Sue wrote back and said she had an apartment available if they could come talk to her that day. I called Jane* and they went down right away.
Not only did they get the apartment, they also are at the top of the list for a Section 8 voucher which will give them rental assistance. In one fell swoop they went from being on the edge to being more secure in both the way of housing and finances. This is one of a hundred ways that we make a difference in the lives of the people we serve here at Rocky Mountain Development Council, Inc..

Colleen Phillips - Home Buyer Education
Oct. 28, 2016 - New homeowners were asked what the ability of owning a home means to them. Stacy Wynn tells her story.
"What does homeownership mean to me? It means the opportunity to provide a better quality of life, freedom, independence, safety and security for my two-legged baby, four-legged fur babies and two-legged feathered babies.
Don’t be embarrassed about situations that life has given you (this was a tough one for me). Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Don’t give up. The only failed attempt is the attempt not taken.
I encourage everyone to take the home buyer class at Rocky Mountain Development Council. This was not my first house and I still learned so much from this class."
