HHA’s FSS Program Services

As a part of HHA’s FSS program, participants work with an FSS Coordinator to develop a plan that outlines specific activities needed to achieve their economic self-sufficiency goals. Throughout the program, the FSS Coordinator monitors participants’ progress and helps them move toward self-sufficiency.

As participants achieve employment goals and increase household income from wages, their rent increases.  An amount equitable to the monthly rent increase is set aside each month into an escrow savings account.  When participants meet all of their goals and graduate from the program, they are eligible to receive a payout of the escrow accrued during their participation.
