TSS Best of 2016

With the spirit and excitement of a new year upon us, all of us at Trusted Senior Specialists (TSS) wanted to take this opportunity to let our clients and colleagues know just how much we appreciate them. As the daughter of Michael Wilhelm, and the “bonus” daughter of Melinda Wilhelm, the two visionary founders of TSS, it my honor to relay the heartfelt gratitude of the  entire TSS family--founders, staff, call center agents, and field agents. We truly have had a remarkable 2016, and we could not have done it without each and every one of you. Before we completely usher in 2017 and wrap this year, we thought it would be wonderful to pause and shine a light on key moments TSS has experienced during these past 12 busy months, from our own perspective.

Help With Affordable Senior Housing

Posted by admin on Jul 16, 2015 10:09:49 AM

Many senior citizens have to live on limited budgets. In some areas, housing is very expensive. However, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, usually called HUD, offers senior citizens help with housing. Many programs are also offered in coordination with a variety of state and local services, and some examples of this will get covered below.

 

Affordable Housing for Seniors in the United States

For a general overview of housing programs in the entire United States, this page is a good place to begin your research: HUD.GOV: Information for Senior Citizens

Some highlights of the resources found on the housing page include:

  • Affordable and subsidized apartments
  • Affordable rural housing
  • Housing counseling for people who have trouble affording their current home

For some people, it might be quicker to begin with local programs. For example, people who live in and around the Houston Metropolitan Area might start with the Harris County Housing Authority’s “Find Housing” page. This page provides a search for all sorts of subsidized housing and other assistance for people who live in Harris County and surrounding counties. For example, some housing units in Montgomery County are also included as are others.
