NeighborWorks® Housing Solutions’ (NHS) Family Self Sufficiency Program (FSS) assists families through a five-year plan to achieve financial independence by encouraging education and job training. The program goal is for participants to achieve family-sustaining employment and salary levels that may enable families to move from subsidized to market-rate housing.
Experience tells us that post-secondary education and vocational training are essential for heads of households to attain family-sustaining income. FSS staff has developed cooperative relationships with a number of community service, job training and educational institutions in order to provide a range of effective services and training for FSS participants.
Who Is Eligible?
Families who are currently participating in the Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) and project-based units through NeighborWorks® Housing Solutions. Head of Household must be 18 years or older.
