Dear FSS participants (and community members),
Happy September to you all!
Please wish a Happy September Birthday to Sharon! I hope your birthday is fabulous and you are finding a little time to take a step towards your goals.
Let’s celebrate an FSS GRADUATION! Azhar has found full time employment while on the FSS program. She joined FSS on 9/1/2017. She increased her credit score, tracked her expenses, made a budget, kept this budget for more than 3 months, met with FISC, attended Rent Smart, stayed out of debt, became a US Citizen, updated her resume, created a cover letter, obtained full time employment and maintained employment for more than 6 months. She did all of this while learning English at FVTC. She graduates from the FSS program with $11,800 in her FSS escrow. In addition, Habitat will be building a home for her and her family in 2024. Please join me in congratulating Azhar! I can’t wait to see you reach your dream of being a home owner!
