KHC's Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS) is a voluntary program for people who are receiving housing assistance through the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program administered by KHC. Participants work with case managers who teach employment skills, money management tips and homeownership education.
The program offers participants the opportunity to learn new skills, achieve economic self-sufficiency, and even provides a means to save for a home of their own. With the FSS Program, KHC opens - and contributes to - a savings account in the participant's name. As the participant's earned income increases, their rent share goes up accordingly and KHC's share decreases. Some or all of KHC's payment portion goes into the savings account, which graduates can spend as they wish. Many FSS participants finish the program with enough money for a down payment on a new home.
