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.

Did you know?
Bank of America will begin to offer small, short-term loans to cash-strapped customers, the Charlotte-based bank announced Thursday, a move that could upend the market for short-term loans. The loans, called Balance Assist, will have a $500 limit, and will only be available to people who have had a checking account at the bank for at least a year. The roll-out will start in a handful of to-be-announced states by January 2021 before expanding to the rest of the country early next 2021.
