The ROSS program works with
local service providers and organizations that provide
Public Housing residents with information and referrals
for low-cost or no-cost assistance.
A public housing resident can be
referred to the program by the Public Housing manager during her
annual recertification. The ROSS coordinator will assist the
resident participant enroll in the program and identify their goals,
and the ROSS Coordinator will then research and refer to resources
in the community to help them work towards their goals.
