What are the long-term benefits you see from your participation in Family Promise?
We were accepted into FPHC and that moment changed our lives. The program works if you trust in it and stay focused. With the help of the financial classes provided by Family Promise were able to learn to save and budget. We saved up for a vehicle that we paid cash for and now own. I received a job offer from Keurig Dr. Pepper and have been working there since last March and Shayla continues to work at the daycare that the younger children attend.
What's your greatest success since graduating from the Empowerment Program?
Graduating from the program and moving into a manufactured home community in Hall county. My wife smiles a lot more and I am proud of where we came from.
We are grateful to have the opportunity to share our story with others. If our journey can inspire and give hope to just one family then we all win.
How have the children transitioned throughout this process?
We have 4 children; three boys and a girl. Nashard is 9, D'Mari is 3, Heaven is 2, and baby Victor is 1. They are all doing great!
