Default I am famous

Well, not really, but there is an article about me on the Net, and I'll be on tonight'* news.
Shut up Boosty
A few years ago my family was on public assistance and Section 8 while I was in school.
Now we are off all assistance and self sufficient.
Barely getting by, but that'* life.
Anyways, Section 8 had a program to help and reward people for getting off the Programs
and becoming self-sufficient.
My family was the first to graduate.
Anyways, they made a big deal about it. I was interviewed over the phone by someone yesterday, and they had a press conference / ceremony thing today.
2 of the local news stations were there and they recorded the whole thing, and they interviewed me afterwards.
Here'* a link to an article about it on the Housing Authority of Erie'* web-site. This is just from my phone interview yesterday, the rest will be on later today or tomorrow.
(with pics) LOL

Congratulations. This is a very admirable thing, and also a tough one. Hopefully other families will follow suit.

Brian,

I have never been on any type of assistance but have worked with people and know that sometimes it can be extremely hard to get out of. Thats why I said way to go, You beat the system.

Yeah, it can definitely suck you in.We were actually doing better when we were on the programs, and life was easier.
But it feels good that we are doing the right thing
