I wanted to take this opportunity to share some exciting news with you, and to let you know just how impactful your support has been. We’ve just turned another corner and a new year is upon us, and we are pleased to tell you we have completed all home sales in South Cumminsville! Our houses on Cedar, Fergus, and Ambrose Street’s, are moving along very nicely and we will work hard to have them available by spring and summer of this year! Pam, who spear heads our “Save the Dream” foreclosure prevention work, recently announced that the staff at WIN helped 340 families keep their homes in 2013 through this program.
Recently, a wonderful story was shared with us by a couple receiving our help through our Financial Literacy program. With great pride, they told us they were able to save $800 for the very first time. They continue to work hard paying down their debt, but what is most delightful about their success is they are building an emergency fund, and will now be able to participate in their employer’s 401K building on their retirement. We hear from many grateful families who tell us, “I can now teach my kids about credit and how to budget”. This program is powerful, foundational, and generational!
We hope you have enjoyed learning more about the work we do each day, and your gifts are what make this possible, and all of our accomplishments are because of your generosity. Our wishes fulfilled are the dreams that come true for those we continue to serve.
