The Welfare To Work program provides employment-related services to CalWORKs clients to assist them in finding and retaining employment, obtaining training when necessary, and in upgrading to higher paying jobs that will lead to financial self-reliance. Supportive services are provided to assist with the costs of childcare, transportation, work clothing, and other items needed for employment. Referral services are also available to address barriers that can prevent successful employment such as substance abuse, domestic violence, or legal and mental health issues.

  • Participation in Welfare-To-Work is mandatory for all CalWORKs recipients unless exempt.
  • Exempt participants may volunteer to participate in Welfare-To-Work. Once a volunteer enters the program she/he must adhere to the rules and regulations of the program the same as mandatory participants.
