Family Self-Sufficiency Program
The Parkersburg Housing Authority's Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS) helps families receiving Public Housing Rental Assistance or Section 8 Rental Assistance achieve economic success through job training, education, employment, and other supportive services.
FSS helps participants:
- Select goals and achieve them one step at a time
- Connect to area agencies, job referrals, educational opportunities, vocational training, counseling, and other resources and services as needed
- Map a five-year action plan outlining goals and steps to succeed and receive personal guidance throughout the five year action plan
