One of the primary goals of the FSS program is assisting individuals and families achieve the goal of owning their own home. Homeownership is about security, comfort, and fulfilling the American dream. The sense of community that comes with putting down roots in a place of your own, the security of owning the roof over your head, the opportunity for financial growth--all these accompany the choice to become a homeowner.
The Family Self-Sufficiency program assists participants by providing credit counseling and information on banking and financial skills improvement. If homeownership is one of your goals, your Resident Services Case Manager will work with you throughout your established 5-year contract to help you connect with matching programs and oversee incentivized escrow accounts to help with down payments and/or closing costs or other expenses related to the purchase of a new home.
For more information about the FSS program and homeownership please contact your Public Housing or Section 8 Housing Specialist for a referral to the Resident Services Department for an orientation.
