Saving for Financial Freedom
We understand the challenges that low-income individuals face when attempting to escape dependence on assistance programs. The FSS Program offers the opportunity for you to save money toward achieving financial freedom – risk-free. As you make progress toward your goals, you may make contributions into an interest-bearing escrow account. After you complete the program, you will receive the balance of the escrow account, which you can put toward education, transportation, or a down payment on a house!
Participation in the FSS program is completely voluntary and there are no penalties for participation in this valuable self-help program. For more information about the Family Self-Sufficiency Program, please contact Heather Kittle at 304-636-6495 ext. 22 or Angie White at 304-636-6495 ext. 21.
