CalWORKs (California Work Opportunity and Responsibility for Kids) is the state's welfare-to-work program for families with children. The Citrus College CalWORKs Program works in collaboration with the Department of Public Social Services to assist students with
education, training and job skills.
Citrus College provides short-term training programs to help CalWORKs students enhance their skills and/or develop new skills in order to find employment as they transition off of cash aid to become self-sufficient.
Additionally, CalWORKs students receive assistance with completion of county paperwork, child care, work-study job placement and referrals to community resources.
If you are receiving Temporary Aid for Needy Families (TANF), the Citrus College CalWORKs Program can help you navigate county requirements and set you on a path to become self-sufficient.
