1.  What services are offered through the Employment Services Division?

Employment Services staff can provide eligibility determination and case management services for California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs), a welfare program that provides cash assistance and services to eligible families with children.  If a family is short on cash and needs help with housing, food, clothes, and medical care, they may qualify to receive immediate short-term help.  Welfare to Work services are available to eligible CalWORKs adults to help them prepare for work and find a job.

     Welfare to Work is a program designed to provide individuals receiving CalWORKs with job training and job searching assistance to become self-sufficient.  Eligible individuals are provided assistance from all components of the Welfare to Work program, including supportive services (assistance with transportation, childcare, and counseling), job training through a work experience program, job coaching/mentoring & support, vocational education classes including job search readiness and paraprofessional training, and learning disability screening and evaluation services.  All CalWORKs recipients, unless exempt, are required to participate in the Welfare to Work Program.

      4.  How can I get assistance with childcare?

     We can help you pay for your childcare expenses while you participate in your Welfare-to-Work activity.  You can choose the childcare provider you want, like childcare centers, relatives, friends, or neighbors.  You may be expected to pay for part of the childcare costs depending on how much money you earn from a job.  We have partnered with Children's Home Society to take care of the childcare payment program and you will be referred to them for your childcare needs.  Your childcare provider will be paid directly by Children's Home Society.
