Great Job

We celebrated many FSS successes in March, but most notably was one of our most recent graduates.  While in the FSS program this young woman accomplished so many things. She started out with us as a single young mother without a job, car or any idea what she wanted to do. Her mother is a NAHA resident who relocated from Mexico and speaks no English which left our client and her siblings without many of the community connections that one would normally be exposed to if it weren’t for a language barrier. The FSS case managers were able to provide direction and supports that this client so desperately needed. While participating in FSS she received vital referrals to local agencies such as: Hispanic Coalition, The Housing Partnership, Inc. and Kentuckiana College Access Center. She completed her C.N.A. courses and started working at a local child care facility. She got a car, enrolled in college and is now working toward an Early Childhood Development Certification. She completed all of her credit repair and homeownership counseling courses and is looking to purchase a house.  She is recently married and anxious to start a new chapter of her life in her own home. We wish her well!
