Family Empowerment Self-Sufficiency Project (FESS)
Southeastern Community & Family Services believes that when a family moves above poverty, they are empowered and become strong, capable members of society, not only coming off of public assistance, but also contributing to the economy.
Funded through the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services, Community Services Block Grant (CSBG), the Family Empowerment Self- Sufficiency (FESS) project works with families to determine their individual and family strengths, needs, and visions for the future. Participants in this program have moved from poverty to self-sufficiency; many became gainfully employed and receiving medical benefits from their employer; many have completed educational or job training, and; many have purchased homes.
