Family Self Sufficiency

The Family Self Sufficiency Program (or FSS) is a voluntary program offered to residents of Public Housing and the Housing Choice Voucher Program that provides participants with the resources needed to move forward on an individualized path toward self sufficiency.

Have you ever thought about the following possibilities?

  • Being free of welfare programs
  • Working at a job you enjoy
  • Becoming a homeowner
  • Saving money for your future

Participants have the opportunity to build financial assets while working toward their educational, professional, and personal goals. The program provides life-skills guidance, assistance overcoming barriers to self sufficiency such as transportation and child care, and opportunities to increase financial stability and pursue personal goals, which may include:

  • Reducing debt/improving credit
  • Earning a post-secondary degree or HiSet
  • Starting a new career
  • Obtaining a new job
  • Starting a business
  • Becoming a homeowner

We invite you to learn more about this life-changing program.
