The ROSS program links residents of public housing to supportive services and activities, enabling them to make progress towards economic independence and housing self-sufficiency.

What are the overall goals of the ROSS program?

For families, the ROSS program is intended to enable participants to:

          • Make progress toward economic independence and housing self sufficiency;
          • Reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance; and
          • Increase earned income

For elderly (age 62+) participants and persons with disabilities, the ROSS program aims to:

          • Enhance quality of life by connecting residents to services and activities;
          • Enable participants to age/remain in place; and
          • Avoid more costly forms of care, such as nursing homes or other institutional

Through needs assessments, case management, and referrals to community- and web-based services, ROSS Service Coordinators help each participant advance towards the above goals in ways that best fit their needs, personal priorities, and interests
