September 2022 FSS Newsletter

Dear FSS participants (and community members),

Happy September!

The Oshkosh Back To School Fair was held on August 17th and 18th with 750 students (1000 total with waitlist) receiving  grade appropriate school supplies, backpacks, hygiene products, clothing, Goodwill vouchers, Rogan’s shoe vouchers and St. Vincent de Paul vouchers. Thank you to all who volunteered, attended and supported this important resource.  If you or someone you know is still in need of school supplies, please contact your school counselor.

Check out  these happenings and many more in this September newsletter:

Our Quarterly FSS Connection Group Meeting is September 12th at 9 am.  The Family Self Sufficiency Program has a lot of changes due to HUD requirements.   Please join us to learn more about FSS and get agency updates!  See page 10 for more info.

 Starting Point Program:  Are you a young woman looking for direction in the areas of education, employment, self-esteem, and a healthy support system? Or maybe you’re a mother of young children looking for a way to provide for your family? If either of these descriptions speak to you, maybe Starting Point is for you. Starting Point is a free 13 week program that will empower you in many areas of life and provide a stable learning environment for your children while you learn. I am so excited that Starting Point is now offered in Oshkosh.  Take a chance and sign up!  See page 5-8 for more details.

Spread the word about the Oshkosh Job Fair on October 12, 2022 from 1pm to 4 pm.  Check out page 11 for more details.

I wish you and your family a very Happy and Healthy September!   Let’s continue to strive to meet your goals and strengthen your self sufficiency.  And as always,  please let me know how I can help you by calling me at 920-424-1470 ext. 133 or emailing me at

Your success is my success. 

Warm Regards,
