Resident Opportunities and Self-Sufficiency
Macon Housing Authority is pleased to offer two Resident Opportunities and Self-Sufficiency (ROSS) programs to residents in public housing. ROSS Family and Homeownership program is designed to create programs such as life skills training, employment and job training, educational and child care assistance, and other programs that will help residents achieve economic self sufficiency. The homeownership component allows residents to participate in homeownership training, counseling, and supportive services for the preparation of housing self-sufficiency and first-time homeownership.
The ROSS Elderly/Persons with Disabilities program provides for the delivery and coordination of supportive services and other activities designed to help improve the living conditions of residents in public housing who are elderly and/or disabled. Such activities under this program include meal services, wellness programs, transportation assistance, housekeeping and personal care service, emergency response systems, job training opportunities, health services, and much more.
