Family Self Sufficiency
The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program is designed to help families become economically self-sufficient. Families meet with the FSS Specialist and establish goals that span a five-year period of time. These goals are unique to each family and may include furthering education, obtaining vocational training, opening a small business, and homeownership. Employment assistance through job fairs and contacts with various employers are provided to FSS participants. The FSS Specialist also guides the family to supportive services and resources in the community.
