Supports to Encourage Low-income Families

Supports to Encourage Low-Income Families (SELF) helps hard-working individuals find a path to live their dreams and better support their families in the future.

SELF’s Mission:  to enhance the quality of life for Butler County residents by impacting the causes of poverty and empowering individuals to achieve, sustain and advocate self-sufficiency. 

What does that mean?  We offer self-sufficiency programs that help people learn new skills, find a job, budget and save more money or even start a small business. We also help with utility assistance, home repairs and mobility modifications, and weatherization for low-income people in Butler County, Ohio.
