The Family Self-Sufficiency Program is offered to Section 8 and Public Housing residents.  This program helps tenants set goals of furthering their education, gaining employment skills, obtaining employment, financial management and homeownership. This is a five year program that allows the resident to build an escrow (savings) account. The Resident & Community Services Department partners with many other agencies in our community for the benefit of services for our participants and their families. The Terre Haute Housing Authority partners with several local agencies in our community to better serve the residents and their families.


The Resident Opportunity Self-Sufficiency (ROSS) Program of the Terre Haute Housing Authority is open to all residents of Garfield Towers, Dreiser Square and Morton Lewis Court and McMillan Square who have a goal of working toward self-sufficiency.

ROSS is a program of informed choices by the family, a 'self-directed' approach, under which the resident is provided with options and chooses the best direction for their particular situation.

Whether you need supportive services, want to further your education, increase your job skills or are looking for a job, the ROSS program is here to make your dreams become a reality.
