Self-Sufficiency Matrix

Self-Sufficiency Matrix

LHOI’s mission is aligned with helping move individuals within our community towards greater self-sufficiency economically. Like many other organizations across the nation, we have adopted the Arizona Self-Sufficiency Matrix (ASSM) as our tool in assessing the needs of our program participants so that we may better serve them with sustainable solutions.  ASSM is an evidence-based tool developed by the State of Arizona in an effort to address the problem of homelessness, unemployment, and deepen an organization’s understanding of the causes that lead to economic instability. The ASSM aims to capture a holistic view of one’s self-sufficiency across several areas of life that contribute meaningfully to one’s ability to improve their quality of life.
