Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS)

  • Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS)

FSS is a program that assists Housing Choice Voucher Program families in meeting goals to improve their quality of life by reducing their dependency on public assistance. In this program, Family Self-Sufficiency coordinators (FSSC's) provide the head of the household and/or other adult members with resources on how to obtain an education, job training, counseling or other types of social services while in the program. The primary objective of the FSS program is employment and job retention.

If you receive rental assistance through DHC's Housing Choice Voucher Program – HCVP, you may be eligible for career planning, job training, family support services, and even pathways to owning your own home. FSSC's provide access to these services through referrals to partner service providers.

When you make a commitment to this program – and keep your commitment - your results can be dramatic.

Your goals should be just out of reach, but not out of sight.
