Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) Program

Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) Program

How the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program
Works in Five Simple Steps:
Dr. Regina DeLay – FSS Coordinator                                       Nicole Smart – FSS Coordinator
  1. The FSS Program is a voluntary five year program offered to Housing Choice Voucher families to help them in becoming more self-sufficient.
  2. When a family enters the program, they meet with a FSS Program Coordinator to discuss their needs and to set goals.
  3. Together, the FSS Coordinator and family set goals that can be achieved over a 5 year period. The family can set any goal they wish but the main goal for every family must be to obtain and maintain full-time employment and to be free of welfare assistance.
  4. Once goals are finalized, the family signs an FSS Contract and completes and Individual Training and Services Plan.
  5. The family works together with the FSS Program Coordinator to achieve their goals and to become more self sufficient.
