The Compass Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS) is a collaboration between Clarifi and Compass Working Capital providing high-quality financial counseling and coaching for participants in the Philadelphia Housing Authority’s FSS program. FSS is a historically underutilized employment and savings program for families who live in federally subsidized housing that allows them to capture a portion of rent as savings when they increase their earnings. The Financial Counselor will provide ongoing, customized financial counseling and coaching for a cadre of clients to help them achieve their goals and reach benchmark targets in five core areas: (1) income and employment; (2) credit and debt; (3) savings; (4) utilization of high quality financial services; and (5) asset development. The Financial Counselor will also help FSS participants optimize their escrow funds toward their financial and asset development goals, including post-secondary education, small business development, homeownership, and credit building. By creating strong and sustainable counseling and coaching models for our clients, this counselor fulfills our mission of creating hope by helping people identify and secure the most important assets in their lives.
