Need Help?

I am an ordinary guy. I like movies and I like to read a little bit. I had a dream to be a homeowner, but I couldn't get anyone to believe that I could make it happen. With the help of the counselor and the education, it came true. I have never been late on a payment in eight years.
– Paul Cunningham, age 61
