AS IT SHOULD BE administers a Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program that provides incentives and support to help refugee families living in Beyond90 residences to increase their earned income and reduce or eliminate their dependence on public assistance programs and achieve life skills that enable independent living thus become self-sufficient members of American society.
We collaborate and partner with local resettlement agencies, NGO’s and other non-profits to coordinate services for FSS families. FSS families are referred to services and educational opportunities that can lead to improved employment and earned income. Such services might include child care, transportation, education, job training, employment counseling, financial literacy, and homeownership counseling.
Families entering the FSS program work with personnel to develop goals that will help the families make progress toward self-sufficiency. These goals may include ESL, life skills training, education, specialized training, job readiness, placement and career advancement activities.
You Can Help! Our financial partners are a critical part of the refugee's journey to self-sufficiency.
