Family Self-Sufficiency

 

The Family Self-Sufficiency Program is a family assistance program offered by the Housing Authority of the City of High Point (HPHA).  The program is open to all families who reside in HPHA Public Housing or Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Program participants.

The FSS program helps families improve their financial situation and offers career opportunities through a variety of counseling services including: employment, educational, home ownership, budgeting and credit.   Other services such as job training, goal setting and family advocacy are also a part of this program.

Individuals and families can save money in escrow accounts as earned income grows. If resident rent increases (as a result of earned income increase), HPHA may deposit a portion of resident’s rent in an interest-bearing escrow account.

Residents may be eligible to earn additional personal funds through this program.  If eligible upon successful completion, residents may use funds toward personal goals.  Common personal goals may include paying off bills, purchasing a car, purchasing a home, obtaining a GED and/or college degree, or start a small business.

For additional information, call HPHA at 336-887-2661 and request a FSS Coordinator.
