Overall goals of the ROSS Program
For Families, the ROSS program is intended to enable participants to:
Make progress toward economic independence and housing self-sufficiency;
Reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance; and
Increase earned income.
For elderly (age 62+) participants and persons with disabilities, the ROSS program aims to:
Enhance the quality of life by connecting residents to services and activities;
Enable participants to age/remain in place; and
Avoid more costly forms of care, such as nursing homes or other institutional facilities.
Through needs assessments, case management, and referrals to community- and web-based services, ROSS Service Coordinators help each participant advance towards the above goals in ways that best fit their needs, personal priorities, and interests.
