The Program has helped me because, by them paying my rent, I was able to catch up on other bills. It took stress off of me for the 6 months knowing that my rent would be paid, on time, every month. The Program assisted me in tension I was having with my landlord. It allowed me to take money that I would have had to pay for rent and do special things with my mom, my brother and my nieces so we can make memories and bond, being I was locked away upstate for three years. The financial literacy class was good and it helped me learn about saving my money and understand my credit. Anytime I needed to talk, they would listen to me.
After serving 10 years, I came back to Harrisburg to begin rebuilding my life. I have been working with the housing assistance program for about a year and a half. The staff at The Program is encouraging and working with them is a one of a kind experience. I am grateful for what they did for me and my wife. The financial assistance has been great and right on time. It helped me and my wife put our lives back together. I was able to save money and build my credit. The financial literacy class gave me major insight on ways to achieve opportunities for me and my wife. The staff helped a brother to keep focused and achieve my goals as well as stay out of trouble.
