November 2023 FSS Newsletter

Dear FSS participants (and community members),

Happy November to you all!  Please wish a Happy November Birthday to Lisa and Tirso!  I hope your birthdays are fabulous and you are finding a little time to take a step towards your goals.

Let’s celebrate Elizabeth’s FSS GRADUATION!  In this picture, Elizabeth is joined by Lora Southworth, Winnebago County Housing Authority’s Operations Manager.  Elizabeth joined the FSS program as of 4/1/2018.  She tracked her expenses, made a budget, kept this budget for more than 3 months, met with FISC to talk about her finances, paid off small debts, got a driver’s license, purchased a vehicle, updated her resume, created a cover letter, attended university classes, and has continued to work full time and part time as a caregiver.  She plans to use the money to pay off debt and save for a house.  Her biggest accomplishment is her self-esteem.  In 5 years, she has grown into a powerful woman.   Elizabeth is ready for graduation and final disbursement of $ 10,600.  Please join me in congratulating Elizabeth!  I can’t wait to see you reach your dream of being a homeowner!
