A Message from the Executive Director

Dear Friends,

How do we tell the story of Project Self-Sufficiency? PSS is a mosaic of many different stories — far too many to fit within the pages of this website.

It is the story of more than 25,000 women, children and men who've crossed our threshold in search of a path forward since 1987. These individuals are our heroes, whose persistence and dedication in the face of life's challenges continually inspires us in all we do.

It is the story of the very small group of fearless individuals who first believed in Project Self-Sufficiency and brought it to life.

It is the story of Board Members, current and former, who stepped forward to lead this organization to 2017 and beyond.

It is the story of thousands of neighbors who embraced Project Self-Sufficiency's mission as their own, providing the financial and moral support to sustain us through the decades.

It is the story of long-term staff who walked through Project Self-Sufficiency's doors to find not just a job, but a purpose in life.

Project Self-Sufficiency is not any one of these stories; it is all of them.

Above all, it is a tale of a community coming together in the most wonderful of ways. I hope you'll recognize yourself as part of this amazing community and take pride in all we've built together over the last three decades.
