Family Self-Sufficiency

shaking hands

Renaissance has provided case management and support for FSS programs. Family self-sufficiency (FSS) is a HUD program that encourages communities to develop local strategies to help voucher and public housing families obtain employment that will lead to economic independence and self-sufficiency. Public housing agencies (PHAs) work with welfare agencies, schools, businesses, and other local partners to develop a comprehensive program that gives participating FSS family members the skills and experience to enable them to obtain employment that pays a living wage. Currently, the clients in the FSS program have positive escrow balances and are meeting goals to obtain self sufficiency.
