Kachette Hollmes is celebrating graduating from the Family Self Sufficiency Program.

It's a program where as long as Hollmes is working, the federal government pays for a portion of Hollmes rent, and the difference is put into a matching fund.

It's a five-year program and we go over goals and we set goals with the clients.
Those five years are now up, and Hollmes has achieved her goals.

She was awarded a check in the amount of $4,000.

Hollmes plans to use the money for a future investment.

I’m looking into maybe purchasing my own home.

Her journey was celebrated with family and friends.

Hollmes says she has learned a lot by being apart of the program over the past five years.

Coordinator for the FSS program, Sandy Gamble says for those who qualify and are not apart of the program, she says they're missing out.

I’m here to be able to guide them, to see that they are meeting their goals and they reach their success and have an event like this at the end of the 5 years.
