"When Hurricane Michael hit, my kids and I were left stranded with nowhere to call home. Florida Housing Finance allowed my family to move out of the RV we'd been living in for almost a year, and move into our current home. Without Florida Housing, we would still be recovering from mass devastation."

Kristin C., Hurricane Michael Recovery Loan participant

"We know people thrive when they have adequate housing - it increases employment, improves health, and reduces recidivism of crime. Our team is proud to celebrate this 40 year milestone and the impact Florida Housing Finance Corporation programs made on those choosing to take the next steps toward renting or purchasing their first home."

Trey Price, Executive Director of Florida Housing Finance Corporation

"The Florida's Hardest Hit Program has taken the stress of paying our mortgage off our shoulders while we get our lives back on track. When the program is finished we will be capable of continuing to pay our mortgage on our own. We live next door to our grandchildren and we don't want to lose our home. Thank you!"

David P., Florida Hardest Hit Program participant

"Thank you so much for your expertise in handling my recent mortgage reduction. It has provided me with peace of mind knowing that I am no longer drowning in my home and even have some equity. Your firm provides friendly service and the ability to explain things in layman's terms."

Bonnie M., Florida Hardest Hit Principal Reduction participant

"On Friday, April 19, 2019, we experienced severe weather with extreme winds and lightening [sic] here In the Gainesville area. Much of the city ended up without power, including our entire Day Program building. Thanks to full-load generator installed this past year with money from Florida Housing Finance Corporation, individuals who live at our Century Oak home (which houses six clients with developmental disabilities) were able to go to the comfort and safety of their own home..."

Danielle Towery, Associate Director of The Arc of Alachua County

"After moving into Village on Wiley I have found stabilization, I have a place to call home, my own regular doctors and I got married in September of 2017. I am thankful to Ability Housing, without them I would still be living on the streets. I have learned to be more responsible, I pay rent which a big responsibility. "

David A., former Marine and Village on Wiley resident
