Family Self Sufficiency
What is it?
A program established by the Melrose Housing Authority to promote economic self-sufficiency among residents.
To empower people to take control of their lives by becoming independent, productive members of the community.
Family Self-Sufficiency does not simply attack the symptoms of poverty; it tackles dependency on all fronts and replaces powerlessness with the opportunity for a better future.
The goal is to assist families in becoming and remaining independent of government assistance.
