Building Families First Community Organization (BFFCO) formerly (WTFSS) are committed people empowering people to "break the cycle of poverty" with a clear vision in the success of our participants through self-sufficiency and to strengthen the community.
We've been bridging gaps in services since 2008. We are an IRS recognized nonprofit organization built to empower any low income individuals to become self-sufficient and off all forms of government, state and local assistance and into home buyers. We have assisted over 3,000 individuals thus far with housing., employment, food and medical insurance.
Our vision is to see Rental assistance be utilized as the temporary and transitional resource that it was originally intended to be. We believe that public housing as never intended to become permanent housing and we should discourage the perception from the current and future families who are able bodied, whom will receive housing assistance Apart from our vision in light of recent Welfare to Work Initiatives, is to "break the cycle of poverty" that still exists among many of our public housing residents.
**Poverty is a state of hardship or lack thereof the socially acceptable amount of money and/or material things. As of 2014, over 48 million Americans live in it, according to the Census Bureau. Although some government programs are lifting some out of poverty, they are not putting people in the workforce, says CNN. This is where Family Self-Sufficiency programs help to fill that gap.
