What is The ROSS Program?
Resident Opportunities Self-Sufficiency.
The ROSS program links residents of public housing to supportive services and activities, enabling them to make progress towards economic independence and housing self-sufficiency.
The goal is to reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance, increase earned income, and to help residents age in place
How the program works
The program is led specifically by the needs of the individual. The ROSS Coordinator presents activities to the community for residents to gain information, community service, and goodies.
Residents are welcomed to seek assistance for self-sufficiency services for specific education courses, any applications, or exams.
The ROSS Coordinator connect residents to agencies for employment security, childcare, education, aging services, substance abuse, domestic violence, and mental and nutritional health services.
