Testimonies
“This program has been such a blessing to me in a number of ways. A few years ago this program helped me get my car fixed by providing funds from my escrow account. There were also a few times that I wasn’t able to pay for school and the escrow funds were available to help. I could go on and on about this program, but I can say that I’m very thankful for everything. I also feel that this program helped to guide me in the right direction and provided me with the necessary tools to get where I needed to be. I am 23 and a homeowner.” - A. Jones (2016 graduate)

The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program is a component of the Housing Choice Voucher and the Public Housing Programs, which provides supportive services and financial incentives  to become economically and socially self-sufficient. 

Purpose: 

The purpose of the Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS) is to provide families the opportunities to remove barriers by identifying resources in the community that will assist them in achieving economic independence.

How it Works: The enrolled participants receive case management services that will assist to evaluate each participant’s strengths, needs and aspirations. The case manager assists the enrolled participants by developing short and long term goals. The program is a five year program and is available to residents who live in Public Housing, participants that receive the Housing Choice Voucher, and residents who live in RAD properties. 

What is Escrow: Enrolled Family Self-Sufficiency participants are eligible to earn escrow. Escrow is an interest-bearing account established by Spartanburg Housing on behalf of the enrolled participants. Deposits to these accounts are made throughout the duration of the family’s participation in the program, if and when a family’s rent increases as a result of increased earned income of the enrolled participant. The additional rent you pay goes into this savings account.
