Why Did We Start Irene?

The truth is, it’s getting harder for senior homeowners to get by these days. Even though they worked hard to care for their home and their retirement, the cost of living and healthcare has ballooned over the past 20 years.

So far, there have only been a few solutions for older adults to attain additional funds when needed during their retirement. They could sell their home, take out additional mortgages that put them in debt, or continue to work to make ends meet.

After watching family and friends struggle as seniors and researching the extent of the problem, we were shocked to find the situation many older Americans face these days. We wondered if he could find another option—a way of giving seniors debt-free funding that would empower them and give them the opportunity to enjoy their retirement with dignity and freedom. This is how Irene was born.
