  1. Hello my name is Terry Brooks. I am disabled and it’s very hard for me to blog around in the right direction. I’m interested in a grant to do some much needed to do repairs in my mobile home that are extremely needed to live. Can you send me a number or agency that may be able to help me out? Thank you.

  2. How can I still live in my home on the disability I know get? Is there any programs to help me my home is almost paid off and I would like to continue living in my home rather than a senior citizens home or apt. My check is $20.00 shy of paying my monthly payment. Where I live in Warren County Ia. They have a tax program where for disabled or low income citizens you can freeze your prop.txs but wells Fargo won’t allow it they said when I die they would have to pay them. My taxes make up most of my payment if I could do that I would be better off not much left but I could feel better about my payment. Do you have any suggestions as to what I could do other than moving?thank you
