Self-Sufficiency is a voluntary program designed to
assist HCV families in becoming independent of
public assistance by overcoming barriers and
improving knowledge, skills and employability.
With a case manager, participants will establish a
plan to achieve goals and connect with community
Are you motivated to change your current life circumstances?
How can the Family Self-Sufficiency program help you?
- Do your GOALS include getting a better
help make a plan and connect with supportive services, such as
career advisors, employment services, and training/educational
opportunities, grants and scholarships.
- Financial incentive: When your earned income
increases (and your portion of the rent goes up) FSS puts money
aside each month in an FSS escrow account. This money
becomes yours when you complete the goals in your plan.
- Our FSS SUCCESS/HOMEBUYERS CLUB and other partner
services will help you understand how to become a homeowner,
increase your credit rating, and learn about opportunities that
will allow you to buy.
- Attend our annual CONFERENCE or other workshops and
RESOURSES that inspire, educate, and create a positive approach
to help you move forward.
