The Family Self-Sufficiency program (FSS) helps individuals and families support themselves so they no longer need public assistance.

The program is voluntary and available to most adults who participate in the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program or who live in public housing through LHA.

Participants must have a desire to become self-sufficient and a willingness to take the steps necessary to make it happen. Participation is open to anyone: employed or unemployed, students or those wanting to attend school, married couples or single persons.
