Get back on track with your educational and employment goals! The ReStart Program helps families with Housing Choice Vouchers connect with education, employment and savings resources by receiving help from a ReStart coach. 

Do you want to:

  • Plan for your future?
  • Successfully support your family?
  • Work at a job that you love?
  • Start and build a savings account?

The ReStart Program is designed to help families who have Housing Choice Vouchers connect with education, employment and savings resources that may lead to self-sufficiency by providing coaching support.

  • Jessica and her family wanted to become independent of the Housing Choice Voucher Program. Jessica worked with the RESTART program to meet her financial goals. As a result Jessica was able to use the $14,000 escrow check she received when she graduated from the program to purchase a home. She and her family are no longer on the Housing Choice Voucher Program.
  • Joe wanted to be able to provide better for his family. FSS helped him to save enough money to move into a better apartment and buy a car that provides safer transportation for his family.
