Self Sufficiency Facilitation
Self-Sufficiency Facilitators work with individuals and families in setting and achieving their own goals for a safe, healthy and financially stable life.
They specialize in crisis situations- such as food insecurity, concerns with physical or emotional safety, housing instability, concerns with transportation, loss/trauma, etc. They are willing to listen, and can offer resources via referrals to other programs, guidance/feedback and support regarding a family’s particular situation, along with resources via referrals to other programs.
Guidelines for ongoing participation:
Families must be under 200% of the Federal Poverty Limit (FPL)
No age restriction for adults (must be aged 18+)
