Family Self Sufficiency Program

Family Self Sufficiency Program

Housing Authority of the City of Perth Amboy ( HAPA) has been helping families since 2001 become less dependent on government entitlements and has helped families to become self – sufficient, confident and successful members of our community.

Currently anyone who is a Perth Amboy Section 8 participant or Public Housing resident can join our Family - Self Sufficiency program.

If you were once a part of our Self – Sufficiency program but didn’t take full advantage of our program and would like to rejoin we are now accepting applications from past non- successful participants.

We understand that in order for our families to become self – sufficient supportive services and referrals to community providers is necessary.

Currently the Housing Authority offers the following services:

  • Case Management
  • Career Assessment and Planning
  • Resume Writing
  • Interviewing Skill
  • Education Referrals – ESL/ GED / College
  • One Stop Resource Center
  • Homeownership : Credit Counseling
  • Money Management
  • Budgeting

If you want to enroll in our Self – Sufficiency Program you can contact Martha Herrera at 732-826-3110 ext. *627, or by email at
