FaDSS Logo

Community Action of Eastern Iowa is proud to be the grantee providing Family Development and Self-Sufficiency (FaDSS) Program services for Cedar, Clinton, Jackson, Muscatine and Scott Counties in Iowa. FaDSS is a supportive service to assist Family Investment Program (FIP) families with significant or multiple barriers reach self-sufficiency.

Referral to FaDSS is made through the Department of Human Services, PROMISE JOBS Program, other third-party sources, and self-referrals. Participation in FaDSS is a voluntary option for people receiving Family Investment Program (FIP) benefits. FaDSS provides services that promote, empower, and nurture families towards economic and emotional self-sufficiency.

The foundation of FaDSS is regular home visits with families, using a strength-based approach. Core services include support, goal setting, and assessment. Support is given in many ways such as referrals, group activities, linking families to communities and advocacy. Assessment aids the family to identify strengths that they possess that may be used to eliminate barriers to self-sufficiency. Goal setting helps families break down goals that seem out of reach into small steps that will lead to success.
