About Tenant Services
With your help with my Budget, I was able to be realistic in my apartment search, not to mention cut expenses for the month. They placed me in an apartment that is very hard to get in. They really seem to care.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! You guys are the greatest.
When a family falls on hard times, self-respect can fall away. Never did I feed anything other than a restoration of my self-respect, helpfulness, compassion and professionalism. Keep up the good work. You all are without equals and are counted as blessings in our lives.
Cathi and Family
While overseas my marriage fell apart. I found myself stranded with four children. We made it back to Omaha with what seemed like problems that couldn't be solved. The one main problem was housing. This is where FHAS stepped in and was helpful and supportive every step of the way. Because of their guidance, knowledge and encouragement, I found a beautiful four-bedroom house in West Omaha and well below fair market rent. I thank God everyday for the help we received from you and your staff.
Please know that I am a very satisfied former homeless person who couldn't say that today if it weren't for your staff.
I needed to find an apartment that was handicap accessible. FHAS helped me find the apartment I am now living in, and I feel very comfortable and safe with everything on one level with grocery store, laundromat and other convenient stores in walking distance.
Without Family Housing helping me, I would have never found such an apartment in a convenient area.
About Homeowner Services
The HomeOwnership Workshop provided three days (12 full hours) of valuable information on the entire home buying process, showing me how to educate myself and shop for the right mortgage, inspections and insurance. Your guest speakers were excellent in showing us how to negotiate with lenders and real estate agents. As a result of your class, I've also developed great budgeting skills!
Thank you so much! I recommend FHAS Home ownership course to anyone who is serious, or if I hear of someone who's shopping for a home.
I really didn't want to be taken advantage of and end up hurting my family instead of helping. I took the Homeowners Workshop, read and re-read the manual, took it with me to look at houses, got back from looking and went back through to answer the newest questions I had. The course and the manual helped me make good decisions. Now I have a home that is great! Neil was great. There were no "stupid" questions as far as he was concerned. I also received a letter that they can help if I need them in the future. That's great, not that plan on letting foreclosure happen, but that they're there to help me if I get into a situation that I need help with. I would have been in a poor situation without this course and this program.
You helped my family in our most stressful and financially difficult time. We were referred by Consumer Credit Counseling Service. Had it not been for your help and understanding, we could have easily lost our home. During the time of our repayment schedule, I received supportive calls from FHAS. My family is finally back on its feet again after a very scary work-related layoff. Our thank-you is to let you know what a difference FHAS made for our lives.
Thank you for all of your time and understanding.
When my husband left, I was lost. I didn't know how I was going to pay bills, feed my kids, or keep the only home they've ever known. You were an angel, and didn't laugh or make me feel stupid because of what I didn't know. If there was no FHAS, I'd be living on the streets today. My tears have turned to laughter and much, much joy. I can never forget you for keeping my family from living on the streets.
"Thank you" to the entire staff at Omaha 100. From day one to the day of close everyone had a helping hand with this blessing. I am truly grateful for everything. Without you and the goodness of the Lord I would still be dreaming of owning my own home. You left a footprint.
