The Compass Family Self-Sufficiency program is our flagship initiative.
The first model of its kind in the country, the Compass FSS program has attracted local and national attention as a scalable, housing-based approach to help families in subsidized housing build assets, reach their financial goals, and become more financially secure.
FSS gives us the opportunity to apply our core competencies in a broad, scalable market. Ultimately, the need for more effective ways to help families with low incomes build savings and assets is a national one, and we have a unique opportunity to inform national practice and contribute to related policy activities through our FSS programs.
The Compass FSS program is currently offered through partnerships with:
- Cambridge Housing Authority
- Lynn Housing Authority and Neighborhood Development
- Metro Housing|Boston
- The Caleb Group
Through our National FSS Network, we are supporting mission-aligned partners across the country to incorporate aspects of our model into their own local FSS programs.
