Self Sufficiency Program

Our goal is to provide the staff, structural and institutional support necessary to integrate core elements into SSP practices, processes and policies. This will lead to the sustainable and systemic change necessary to better meet the needs of families in Oregon.


Self-Sufficiency Program (SSP) supports staff members to do the type of relational engagement and case management required to achieve better outcomes for children and families.

Due in large part to the recession and financial crisis Oregon has been facing over the past few years, it has been difficult to support the kind of case management
and engagement with families deemed necessary.

Historically, this type of support was intended only for case managers; however, for SSP to truly implement such as transformation initiative, it is important to include 

all those who come in contact with a family including those at the district, branch and central office.
