Project Self-Sufficiency’s mission is to help low-income single parents graduate from college with the skills necessary to achieve economic independence. We do this by providing customized, wraparound services throughout their educational journey and transition into a career.
Project Self Sufficiency is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports low income, single parents working toward an educational goal to become economically independent. The Project Self-Sufficiency program was founded in 1985 as part of a national effort to provide support to low income, single parents and today we continue our efforts as a local community-based program that fulfills the support we need from the help of our local volunteers and strong partnerships within the community. As a result, we have been able to assist over 500 families over the last 27-years and have made a direct impact in the lives of these families.
We'll work with your schedule.
