Gladys Vasquez joined the Family Self-Sufficiency Program in May 2017 and never looked back.   As a single mother of 4 children, she continued to remain diligent and would never allow her difficulties to get in the way of reaching her goals. While in the program, Gladys improved her credit by over 40 points, established a personal savings account, got a great job as an Administrative Assistant at Valley Medical Group, completed the First-Time Homebuyer Workshop, received an escrow in the amount of $28,000 and just yesterday she successfully purchased a home for her family here in Holyoke! We are so proud of her and know that her family will enjoy this home for many years to come.
Gladys wished to share a brief testimonial of her time in the program: 

"When I was enrolled in the family self-sufficiency program 5 years ago I began working tirelessly to accomplish and achieve my goals and every time I felt like giving up Justine and Vivian would provide advice and continued guiding me along the way.  Once my goals were achieved you guys made the home buying process extremely easy while providing knowledge along the way. You guys don’t understand what you have done for me. THANK YOU so much for making my DREAMS of owning a home a REALITY!!!!"
