The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS)Program combines MDHA and private resources to support and empower residents. The type of services received enable families to increase their income, reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance and progress in achieving economic independence and housing sufficiency. Becoming a homeowner is the ultimate goal but residents may also become self-sufficient by gaining higher education which increases their employability skills and qualifications. The program can also help residents obtain better than average jobs, establish their own business, reach fair market rent levels and other goals. See Resident Succes Stories
