Family Enrichment Center

For families who receive FIP (Family Investment Program) and participate in PROMISE JOBS, the state also provides the option of joining the Family Development and Self-Sufficiency program (FaDSS). The Polk County Family Enrichment Center (FEC) provides FaDSS services for Polk County.

This voluntary program provides services which aim to promote, empower, and nurture families towards economic and emotional self-sufficiency. The foundation of
FaDSS is regular home visits with families, using a strength-based approach. Core services include support, goal setting, and assessment. These case managers meet with and track each family as they progress through the case lifecycle.
