Jeleiny’s Story

Jeleiny graduated from Community Teamwork’s Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program in October 2022 and bought a house! When she began FSS, she and her husband, Juan were both unemployed. She completed financial literacy classes, did one-on-one financial counseling, improved her credit score, and took first-time homebuyer workshops. This year, Jeleiny secured employment as a college Enrollment Counselor making $48,000, and her husband secured employment as a truck driver making $58,000. Having completed her goals a full year early, she graduated FSS with $18,376 in escrow. Jeleiny and Juan forfeited their housing voucher and purchased their first home on October 5th in Gloucester, MA. They are a true success story!
