Resident Opportunity and Self-Sufficiency (ROSS) Program
The ROSS program is designed to help residents set goals, acquire job skills training, further their education, and connect with community resources so they will be able to find and maintain employment. Through these activities the residents will become more independent and self-sufficient, which enables them to create a better life for themselves and their families.
The property managers take care of housing the residents, dealing with any issues they may have pertaining to housing. The ROSS coordinator assists residents with personal needs or issues they may have that deter them from reaching their goals, by making referrals to agencies in the community that can assist them. These issues might include the need for:
- Medical, dental, or mental health services
- GED classes
- Employment assistance
- Life skills training
- Budgeting assistance, credit counseling
The ROSS program is available to every resident of the housing authority, age eighteen or older, and their family members. With the support and encouragement this program offers, residents can make meaningful changes in their lives if they have the desire to do so.
