In August the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program presented Ms. Marilyn Stewart with her Certificate of Achievement and a check in excess of $16,000 for graduating from the FSS program.

Ms. Stewart’s earned income steadily increased during her 2 ½ her participation. She graduated early as her income increased to the point that she paid all of her rental costs without the subsidy assistance provided by HUD/Section 8. She is currently employed with Burger King as Lead Assistant Manager and is on her way to becoming a General Manager. She is a single mother with two children and has devoted herself to ensuring her children receive the best she can possibly give them. The money she received from her participation has already been deposited.

Now, she has a new goal: To use this money to purchase a home so her children can have a backyard in which to play. With her drive and determination, there is no doubt that she will succeed in her quest of homeownership.
