FAMILY SELF-SUFFICIENCY (FSS) PROGRAM

The DHA Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program is a voluntary program designed to assist families in becoming economically independent and self-sufficient within a five (5) year timeframe. All DHA Housing Choice Voucher and Public Housing residents are eligible to participate in the Family Self-Sufficiency Program.

WE ARE PROUD TO SHARE THAT IN 2018, DHA PROVIDED QUALITY FAMILY SELF-SUFFICIENCY SERVICES TO 838 FAMILIES

Each family has an FSS case manager who provides one-on-one support to help them develop their plans, determine what resources and support they need to achieve their goals and access to resources including education, job training, credit repair, job search assistance, homeownership preparation and more. While in the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program, clients must be active; either in school or working at least 30 hours per week. There is no cost to DHA residents for participating in the program, but there is a financial incentive for successfully completing the program.

We fully believe every person is capable of success. Providing access to resources that help our clients become self sufficient is one of the greatest investments we make. We love watching people thrive.
