How the Family Self-Sufficiency Program put an Idaho woman on the path to homeownership

Kiesha can see the finish line. With just two semesters left to complete her master’s degree in social work, she’s looking to the future. She’s putting plans together for her private practice and thinking about the freedom it will give her to set her own hours. She’s thinking about the extra time she’ll spend with her daughters once all that school work is in the past, as well as enjoying the home that she worked so hard to call her own. The Family Self-Sufficiency Program helped make her dreams a reality.

Ten years ago, Kiesha had a much different outlook on life. She was ready for a fresh start after escaping an abusive relationship and fighting to get her daughters out of foster care. It was the beginning of her transformation to where she is now. The Family Self-Sufficiency program, or FSS, is a voluntary program that helps families using Housing Choice Vouchers become financially independent. See how Kiesha took advantage of the program to become a homeowner.
