The San Antonio Housing Authority is dedicated to helping families break the cycle of poverty and overcome barriers to self-sufficiency.
This five-year program brings together training, education, and supportive service resources to assist families in obtaining employment that will lead to economic independence and self-sufficiency. A written plan to achieve these goals is prepared and developed into a contract between the family and SAHA.
A feature of the FSS program is an escrow account that can be utilized for any purpose the family chooses upon completion of the program. SAHA works with agencies, schools, businesses, and other local partners to develop programs that give FSS family members the skills and experience to get jobs that pay a living wage.
