Graduate Stories




“I was homeless and unable to get an apartment due to a 348-credit score. Even though I worked full-time, I was going in circles and didn’t see any way out of the rut I was in.

Creating a weekly budget, watching my spending habits, accounting for money spent, and not having to pay rent, utilities, or other cost of living expenses made it possible for me to pay off several debts, and my credit score soared.

When I graduated from TCP, I had saved over $8,000, my credit score was at 690, and I was prepared for my homeownership journey! What TCP offers is not a handout but a hand up.” – Mary, a TCP graduate.
