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.
