Hardest Hit Fund

I lost my job in 2008 due to company down size! My unemployment ran out in 2010! While at the unemployment office looking for a job I saw posters about the HHFund saying,,,if you owe 32,000 or less on your mortgage we can help! It caught my eye because that's how much I owed on my mortgage! After much research on the program I made an appointment! What a nightmare!! They spent the next 3 YEARS trying to figure out how NOT to help me even going so far as to change to guidelines so I wouldn't qualify! After exiting the program I now owe 69,000 on my mortgage and was left with a mortgage I cant pay! I just wish I had never asked for help from your HHF! Meanwhile I watched employees of this program get new office building, state of art equipment, new cars etc.... Someone needs to look and see where the money is really going because its not helping the ones the program was designed for! I am a 51 year old widow with 4 children who was taken advantage of by your program! To many red flags from day one for me to list! This money is not helping the ones it was meant for!
