Family Self-Sufficiency Program


The mission of the Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSSP) is to assist local Hmong refugees in overcoming various social and mental health problems that hinder their ability to become independent and self-sufficient citizens of their local communities.

On-Site Social Services:

  • Intake, assessment, plan development, service referral, plan management, and related supportive assistance.
  • Translation and interpretation, transportation, food distribution, landlord disputes, legal issues, physical and mental health services, and related support.
  • Language-specific assistance.
  • Life-skills training for learning day-to-day coping skills.
  • Assistance to clients and their families who feel isolated or who lack knowledge about local community resources.
  • Instruction in anger management, parenting, and family strengthening.
  • Referrals to alcohol and substance abuse treatment programs. Several of these programs are culturally and linguistically suited to the Hmong clients.

Food Program

Lao Khmu Association, Inc. sponsors a Food Program through which fresh, processed, and canned foodstuffs are made available to low-income residents in the greater Stockton area.

Refugee Employment Assistance

This program has been designed so that we are able to recruit only the most motivated participants. These are not people being forced to work because of welfare reform.
