Review for Military Warriors Support Foundation, San Antonio, TX, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

My daughter and son in law received a home from Military Warriors Support Foundation about 1 1/2 years ago. At first we thought this was great for them, it was a nice house and was handicapped accessible. But please do NOT put these people who are financially strapped into a house where they have to pay HOA fee's and in a house where the taxes they have to pay per month is more than a mortgage would be. They have a financial adviser who doesn't even let them know when the taxes and payments are going up. Really $600 a month for property taxes and $100 a month for HOA fees. Plus all the extra utility bills for being in a much larger place. How does this foundation really expect them to pay for this? Someone needs to do something about this. Lets make sure these people can afford the monthly expenses. Sure it sounds great that they are getting mortgage free home, but now they are strapped more than before.

You bring up an interesting concern. After a certain point in the vetting process, each applicant and family applying for a specific property must submit financial documentation for MWSF to address this specific concern. Each family is also made aware of each of the expenses that they are responsible for prior to being awarded the property in question. The expenses that you have in question, therefore, should have been addressed prior, and during, the family's transition into the home. If the family is having concerns of their monthly expenses, that should be a conversation between themselves and their financial advisor as adjustments can, sometimes, be made if funds are "complicated." It is the goal of MWSF to ensure that each family is living comfortably afford the property and able to save/pay off debt while they are living in the home, and to not incur new forms of debt. If your daughter and son in law are having these issues, please have them connect with our office at (210) 615-8973 so that we can pin down what the issue may be and see if it is at all possible to have adjustments made. Thanks for your message!
