California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) is a cash aid program for low income families to meet their basic needs. It also provides education, employment, and training programs to help families get jobs and move towards self-sufficiency. Child care, transportation, work expenses and counseling are available for families in work activities. There is a five year time limit for adults but the children can remain on aid if otherwise eligible under the Safety Net program. CalWORKs provides support to eligible students to obtain their educational degrees and certificates while gaining work experience leading to sustainable employment. A wide array of services are offered to help you achieve your goals.
CalWORKs funds assist single or two-parent families who are receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and those in transition off welfare.
