FSS graduate receives 17K in earned savings at final graduation of 2022

San Antonio, TX – The Housing Authority of Bexar County hosted our final Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program Graduation of the year, celebrating the successes of six graduates.

The ceremony took place on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. at the HABC office on 1954 E. Houston St.

“The FSS Program is important because we can encourage participants to reach the goals they set forth for themselves and to provide the needed support within our organization. We see the transformation and the hurdles they jump to be successful and we are so proud of them,” said Housing Choice Voucher/Section 8 Manager, Stella Garza.

HABC had a stacked line-up of speakers to end the year on a high note, with Bexar County Clerk Lucy Adame-Clark in attendance, along with HABC Board Chair, Lupe Torres. Laura Montez from Bexar County Economic Development and HABC Board Member Robert A. Wehrmeyer also attended the event.

“I grew up in housing with my parents. They took advantage of the program, they now own their first home and they’re doing very well. And now myself and my sisters are doing very well as well too. So, take advantage of any program that Bexar County Housing Authority offers you,” said Bexar County Clerk Lucy Adame-Clark.

Checks presented ranged from about $2,500 to a little over $17,000.
