Resident Opportunity and Self-Sufficiency Program


Resident Opportunity for Self-Sufficiency (ROSS) program is available to all residents of federally funded public housing properties. The goal of the program is to enable families to make progress toward achieving economic self-sufficiency through increased knowledge of and access to educational opportunities, English and computer literacy, job training opportunities, childcare and parenting support resources. Our Resident Services Coordinator also works with elders and persons with disabilities, enabling them to maintain independence in their homes and help improve living conditions by providing information and linking residents with available resources and supports.

If you live in Federal Public Housing in Medford and would like more information, please contact Lisa Tonello at 781-396-7200 X130 of ltonello@medfordhousing.org

Resident supports and services are available for our elderly and persons with disabilities who reside in our Walking Court state funded development as well.  Through a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), the Medford Housing Authority in conjunction with Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) has an onsite Resident Coordinator who will work with our Walkling Court residents to enable them to maintain independence in their homes through MVES and other available resources and supports to meet their personal needs.

If you live in State Public Housing in Medford (Walking Court) and would like more information, please contact Betty Louis at 781-388-2366 or by email at blouis@mves.org.
