Family Self Sufficiency Program

Family Self Sufficiency Program


The FSS program was created in the 1980’s as a way for people who receive public housing or Section 8 to reduce dependence on government subsidies and save money to put toward the purchase of a home, start a business or further your education.  The program combines stable and affordable housing along with staff support to help you get what you need to reach your goals.  To qualify, you must be willing to commit to long term goals regarding education and employment and work closely with your FSS Coordinator.

Are you ready to:

  • Find a job or increase your salary?
  • Enroll in school or a training program?
  • Start your own business?
  • Plan for homeownership?

Case Management

You will work with the FSS Coordinator to create your personal life plan. This plan will include specifics about your individual goals and the steps you’ll need to take to reach them.  You will be provided with local resources and referrals to help you reach your goals and be successful.
