Erica Jackson has just moved into her house in Cypress with her two boys.
Despite a well-paying job, it’s the first home that the 36-year-old has been able to purchase – thanks to a counseling agency called Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America.
The group helped her to control her spending, deal with her student loan debt and save more money every month.
“I just feel stable,” Jackson said. “I feel like I’m part of the whole American Dream, you know, and responsible.”
