Stable, quality rental housing is a cornerstone of economic stability. But Housing Works recognizes this is only one block in building community.

While access to affordable housing is our core mission, we also help families and individuals lay a solid foundation with other essentials–savings accounts, deposit assistance and credit-building loans, and home ownership planning.

We invite our Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) recipients to explore the many programs we offer to sustain families and help people build financial assets.

Family Self-Sufficiency/ PATHWorks

The Family Self-Sufficiency Program, commonly known as FSS, helps families increase their earnings and build financial capability and assets.

VIDA Asset Building Matched Savings Account

The Valley Individual Development Account (VIDA) is a custodial savings account that you, as the participant, will deposit savings into monthly.

Homeownership coaching and options and how to apply your Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) towards a mortgage.
