Resident Services Programs

Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS)

The FSS program is a voluntary work-based program designed to assist families in becoming economically independent and self-sufficient. With the support of various local agencies, FSS combines focused case management, education, job training, and ongoing motivational support to aid the family in making positive changes in their lives.

Families who participate in the FSS Program have the opportunity to earn an escrow account and have assistance with: employment counseling, transportation, education, skills training, homeownership counseling, childcare assistance, financial counseling, credit repair and much more!

This program is available to anyone with a Section 8 voucher through Somerville Housing Authority, or any resident living in Federal Public Housing in Somerville.
