I would like to pass on some important information about the Illinois Hardest Hit Fund which provides temporary mortgage payment assistance for homeowners as part of a joint effort by the Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA) and the U.S. Department of Treasury.  You WILL NOT be asked to pay for any eligibility determination services related to this application.

The Chicago Public Schools Parent Portal is another useful link.  Features include email or text messages if a child misses a class or drops below a desired grade percentage.  You will also be able to:  1.) View all absences and tardies; 2.) Have access to recently completed and upcoming assignments with due dates; and 3.) Online access to communicate with your child’s teachers.  Before signing up, you will need your child’s CPS ID# and your unique school-issued PIN #.

We hope you and your family enjoy a happy and safe school year.

I recently read an article about a struggling homeowner with a happy ending, so I wanted to share it with you.  Not only is it great to hear when someone is able to save their home, but it provides a resource for others overwhelmed by the same types of problems.

This organization helped the homeowner find a non-profit that provided a one-time house payment, another resource which assisted her with her heating bill, and also helped her win an exemption from a recent property tax increase.  To read the entire article, click here.

For anyone looking to save a little money, I found a website with free things to do in Chicago.  You can also send it to friends and relatives in other parts of the country since they provide information for all U.S. cities.  You can check it out here.

Remember, to be extra careful when you’re out on the road this Labor Day weekend.  Until next time, I hope you, your family and friends enjoy a happy and safe holiday.
