Jessica F. needed housing assistance.  She had a nine-month-old baby and another on the way and could barely scrape together money for monthly rent.  

Rental assistance in the form of a Housing Choice Voucher became her life support.  With this help, Jessica was able to start working toward financial independence through Housing Works’ PATHWorks program.

With a plan to pay off debt, strengthen her credit and find full-time employment, she realized that new possibilities were within reach.  She completed homebuyer education, got approved for a mortgage loan–and now resides in her own home with her two girls.

Through hard work and dedication, Jessica also accumulated over $10,000 in her escrow savings account and has released her housing assistance.  She plans to use the money for home improvements and an emergency savings account.
