To create partnerships with public and private agencies to provide quality supportive services to Housing Choice Voucher participants. The expectation from these partnerships is the ability to provide referrals for supportive services including, but not limited to, childcare, employment, education, life skills, and homeownership.
- The combined support of housing assistance and supportive services will enable the FSS participants to meet the goals defined in their FSS contract and to move toward achieving financial independence and self-sufficiency.
- To provide families with stable rental assistance support while in FSS, allowing them to participate in employment education and job training programs without undue concern regarding their ability to retain shelter for the continued welfare and safety of their families.
- To provide participating families with an opportunity to save for the future through the establishment of an interest–bearing escrow account.
