What is ROSS?

The purpose of the Resident Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency (ROSS) Service Program is to provide opportunities for families living in public housing to identify and work towards life goals and be connected to services in their community. These services will enable participating families to increase earned income, reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance, make progress toward achieving economic independence and housing self-sufficiency or, in the case of elderly or disabled residents, help improve living conditions and enable residents to age-in-place.

 The ROSS program is the connection between the family and the appropriate supportive services necessary to achieve independence. ROSS Coordinators will help guide each family through a service plan which will assist participants in setting short and long term goals.

Some of the service connections provided to families include: child care, transportation necessary to receive services, remedial education, CRC certification, financial management, soft skill training and any other services and resources appropriate to assist eligible families to achieve economic independence and self-sufficiency.

Whether you need supportive services to live independently, want to further your education, or increase your employability skills, the ROSS program is here to help make your transition from public assistance to economic independence as smooth as possible.
