"You showed me so much patience even at times where things seemed unnerving. From the rental assistance, help to get my credit together and just being there for me and my family. Thank you for your time and commitment."

"After taking the course, I realized I never really understood how the credit system worked. Lydia’s House laid out the options for me. From this point on, I have the power to change my circumstances."
