The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program voluntary program open to all families receiving Section 8 Housing assistance through the Caribou Housing Authority.  It is important that families interested in the program have a desire to become self-sufficiency and are willing to act on that desire.  The FSS Program provides support and assistance to the entire family for up to five years.  Families who have completed the program can still reside in CHA housing, if eligible.
