Can I stay on salary as PR & advocate?

I am the founder of a 501(c)(3) group home for individuals with autism, founded for my grandson who is autistic, and others like him. I decided to step down as executive director. I never paid myself more than $2,000/mo. I wanted to stay on salary as PR & advocate. The board says I cannot because of the new employment law. I'm Founder, was executive director & my grandson lives there. Is this correct? They now will not let me see financials, minutes or anything even though it is public information. I live on my Social Security & my husband's retirement & don't have enough money to live on.
