Helping seniors with property tax problems stay in their homes
Home ownership is vitally important to many older adults, signifying independence, dignity and the well-earned rewards of a lifetime of work. Unfortunately, many Milwaukee County seniors could lose their homes if they fall behind in their property taxes.
The Homeowners Options Program for the Elderly (HOPE), offered by Aurora Family Service, was created to safeguard home ownership for seniors struggling to pay property taxes.
HOPE counselors will provide a free, unbiased assessment of a homeowner's financial situation, identify options available and assist in making informed decisions.
Help is available
There are often benefits they are eligible for that you may not know about. Our counselors can help homeowners take full advantage of homestead credits, entitlement programs and untapped sources of revenue. We also help with budgeting and can connect people with other services to help you maintain independence and quality of life.
HOPE is available to Milwaukee County homeowners 60 years or older.
