Etta from North Carolina wanted a lifeline — one that wouldn't increase her monthly obligations. Her aging mother outlived her savings, and Etta had taken on the financial burden of juggling their bills. On top of covering their expenses, Etta found herself shouldering the responsibility of paying for her mother's home care assistance. Stretched thin, she felt "close to drowning." 

As a teacher of 33 years, teaching has always been Etta's passion — but it was beginning to make more financial sense for Etta to retire and care for her mother herself. 

Point's Home Equity Investment offered Etta relief — and the power to regain control over her finances. Partnering with Point, Etta could afford professional care for her mother, get ahead on the bills, and bolster her emergency fund. Now Etta has options. She can retire on her own terms and has choice over the quality of caregiver her mother will receive.
