Hi Tom, I apologize that our volunteer did not treat you with kindness and respect. If you would like to contact us, we would like to hear about the incident so that we can make changes going forward. Our phone number is 618 876 4578. We can also discuss your application at that time, although you should have received a letter in the mail with your application status. Again, my apologies for your experience with our volunteer. Please understand that this is not indicative of our organization as a whole, which is full of big-hearted, compassionate individuals who give countless hours to help southern Illinois homeowners.
