FSS July 2018 Newsletter

It’s a Party!   Laurel graduated from the Family Self Sufficiency program on 6/20 at 11 am at 600 Merritt Ave, Oshkosh. She has worked very hard during her time in the FSS program. She enrolled in DVR, found a better fitting job, took computer classes to better her employability, improved her financial management skills, continues to meet with her Winnebago County Literacy Tutor, and has been able to set up an emergency fund for future needs. She graduated with $2763 in her FSS escrow account. Please join me in celebrating her success.

We have another FSS graduate in June with a graduation party pending in July. This participant ran her credit report, tracked her spending, made a budget, met with FISC for financial management, maintained a budget for 3 months, found reliable childcare for her baby, updated her resume and found full time employment as a victim advocate. She now receives healthcare benefits through her employment and is providing a great life for her daughter. She graduated with $1600.98!! Congratulations for being a great role model for young mothers !
