What's holding you back from acheiving your goals? Is it childcare? Transportation? Education? An FSS Program Specialist can work with you to identify and solve the issues that keep you from reaching your dreams.

clip5.jpgFamily Self-Sufficiency (FSS) is a voluntary employment and savings incentive program designed to assist families in becoming economically independent and self-sufficient.

Some of the benefits include: Obtaining the education or training you need to make a living wage, case management and support services, receipt of an escrow check upon successful completion of your contract, and pride in achieving your goals!

Participating FSS families are required to sign a Contract of Participation with the Rochester Housing Authority. An FSS family then has five years to complete specific goals and objectives identified in their service plan.
