Our recent graduation was a tender and joyful celebration. Four Fellowship moms, surrounded by friends and supporters, graduated from our program last week.
Each of the four moms stood bravely before the group and told her story—some with a few tears. Each talked about what she’d learned, the obstacles she’d overcome, the goals she’d accomplished. All four moms have purchased a home or will soon.
Each of them has paid off debt, increased their credit scores and built a savings account. collectively, these four women have:
- Raised their credit scores by an average of 125 points!
- Paid off a total of $43,000 in debt!
- Saved a total of $65,000!
They’ve gained confidence in their ability to manage their finances and provide for their families, with God’s help. They’ve grown in their faith and built a strong support network that will enable them to succeed as they leave the program. As one mom said, One graduate said, “You never know how strong you can be until being strong is your only option.”
The Fellowship two-year program is challenging, and all our graduates acknowledged that truth. (Read about the details of our program here.) It takes courage and determination and grit to stay the course for two years.
But these women were proud of having met the challenges and, in so doing, become a stronger person.
