Family Self-Sufficiency

What is the Family Self-Sufficiency Program?

The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) is a voluntary work-based program designed to assist families in becoming economically independent and self-sufficient. With the support of local agencies, FSS combines case management, education, job training, and ongoing support to aid the family in making positive changes in their lives.

What does the Family Self-Sufficiency Program do?

The FSS program helps families establish goals and identify barriers which could prevent achievement of those goals. The program will provide resources and services necessary for success and develop a plan with specific activities and actions needed to achieve goals. The program provides case management services, encouragement, motivation, and moral support to help families achieve their goals.

What resources and services are available through the FSS Program?

In collaboration with local agencies and service providers, the FSS Program attempts to address a wide variety of family issues including but not limited to: career counseling, job training, education (high school diploma, GED, college), financial planning and budgeting, legal services, individual and family counseling, parenting skills, and home buyer education.

What are the benefits of participating in FSS Program?

Families who participate in the FSS program have the opportunity to obtain resources and services to make positive changes in their lives. They have an opportunity to receive an escrow check upon successful achievement of their goals and completion of the Contract of Participation. The FSS program provides families with homeownership opportunities.

Who Can Participate in Family Self-Sufficiency Program?

Individuals, 18 years of age or older, currently residing in a Southern Nevada Regional Housing Authority Public Housing development who are determined to make positive life changes are eligible to participate in the Family Self-Sufficiency Program.
