The Crossville Housing Authority’s Board of Directors awarded Crossville resident Miranda Horton $9,281.26 Monday afternoon, signaling her completion of the Crossville Housing Authority’s Family Self-Sufficiency Program. The FSS program is a grant based program where clients work closely with CHA staff to set and achieve educational and vocational goals, with the end goal being complete self-sufficiency. Ms. Horton not only achieved her educational and career goals, but has since qualified for and purchased a home through Habitat for Humanity, for which she and her children are hoping to move in the first week of December. Miranda is a shining example of all that can be accomplished through this exceptional program! For more information on the FSS program please contact Brenda Hays, Program Coordinator at 931-484-2990.
