Our Story

We help hard-working, responsible people who, if they are the average working person, are living paycheck to paycheck, have little to no savings, and are spending more than 30% of their income on housing.

Join us as we help keep responsible residents in their apartments during an unexpected financial emergency and also help them better prepare for future emergencies.
