Success Story: Single Mom Buys Home to Call Her Own
Cindy contacted Telamon with bad credit but lots of hope. She wanted to take her son out of subsidized public housing unit that had become her home. She and her Telamon counselor gathered around her kitchen table to discuss her future. Cindy made the decision to tackle her credit issues. With the help of her counselor, she contacted debtors and paid off delinquent accounts. Her score rose significantly. In 2008, she became a home owner for the first time. Today, she lives in the same home and works as the Unit Director of the Boys & Girls Club of Chatham, Virginia. She carries the Telamon spirit full circle by giving back to the community.
