San Antonio, TX –
The Housing Authority of Bexar County celebrated the agency’s highest escrow disbursement on record for a single participant at this month’s Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program graduation. We had five graduates participating in this quarter’s graduation celebration, with a combined total of $102,554.47 dispersed to the graduates. One graduate in particular, Danielle Williams, received the agency’s highest disbursement on record, taking home $41,308.20!
The ceremony and escrow check distribution took place on Wednesday, May 31, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. at the HABC office on 1954 E. Houston St.
“It is with great excitement that the Family Self-Sufficiency Program announces the highest escrow disbursement to a single participant in the history of the program and more than $100,000.00 in total disbursement for the graduation. We are proud of our graduates for all their hard work during their time in the program and wish them continued success and happiness in everything they do,” said Interim Sr. FSS Coordinator, Marco Reyes.
We were thrilled to have County Judge Melanie Lira speak at this quarter’s graduation, providing a few words of encouragement and congratulations as the graduates embark on the next phases in their lives.
*The FSS Program is a 5-year incentive program for Section 8 Voucher holders to help them strive toward self-sufficiency. Participants accrue money in an escrow account as their income increases over time. At the completion of the participant’s 5-year contract, the family graduates and is presented with their escrow disbursement.
