CalWORKs

The CalWORKs program is to assist students in becoming self-sufficient, gain independence from public assistance, obtain a job, and continue life-long learning. We provide services to students who are receiving Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF). Staff are not employed by the Social Services Agency (SSA) but by the North Orange County Community College District as advocates of self-sufficiency through education.
 
Through the CalWORKs program, students may be eligible for paid work study opportunities, child care, academic guidance and counseling, ancillary funds for books and supplies, work activity progress report form completion, communication assistance with the Department of Social Services, workshops to enhance living skills, and networking activities. The CalWORKs program works closely with the Extended Opportunities and Services Program (EOPS) and Financial Aid department to ensure students receive maximum support services. CalWORKs and Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) programs collaborate to provide services to students.
