The Arlington Housing Authority's Family Self Sufficiency team, assisted by Housing Specialists, held a job fair today for clients in Homeless Services Programs and those participating in the Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) Program.

Employers included Southwest Airlines, Amazon, Walmart, Mouser Electronics, 24-7 Staffing, Home Depot, UPS and many more.

The Family Self-Sufficiency Program assists eligible families in becoming economically self-sufficient members of the community. As part of the voluntary five-year program, participants establish individual goals, which must include full-time employment. The FSS staff will coach participants to help in achieving those goals.

The FSS program provides the following services:

  • Educational assessment, academic remediation, and GED preparation.
  • Self-esteem and assertiveness training.
  • Vocational assessment.
  • Employment and job search training.
  • Reimbursement for job related expenses.
  • Budgeting skills training.
  • Gasoline allowance and minor car repair assistance (limited).
