Family Self-Sufficiency Program

The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program is a voluntary program that helps families improve their economic situation, so they don't have to depend on public assistance.  Each FSS participant creates a five-year plan that includes employment goals and identifies training and educational needs.  A case manager works with the family to identify and secure the services they need to accomplish these goals. 

For more information, please call the Resident Services Department at 304-242-9412, ext. 1104 


"Through the FSS Program I received my GED and got my first job.  It didn't pay much, but it felt good to get a paycheck.  It wasn't long before I went to my case manager and asked how I could get a better paying job.  He helped me with my resume and in a few weeks my paycheck doubled.  I developed confidence and applied for financial aid and went to school for a few semesters.  I didn't even finish my degree when my boss offered me a full-time job with benefits!  I never saw myself as an independent working mother.  Sometimes I still can't believe it.  It was hard juggling work and school and kids, but I did it!"
