In 1996, California redesigned its welfare system titled California Work Opportunities and Responsibilities to Kids (CalWORKs). CalWORKs is a federally mandated program designed to assist parents who are receiving TANF (Temporary Aid to Need Families, formerly called AFDC (Aid to Families with Dependent Children). The goal of the program is to assist these parents in gaining employment and to achieve long-term self-sufficiency by providing education and training as a viable welfare-to-work activity. At College of the Siskiyous the services we provide to our CalWORKs student are below.
The CalWORKs program can provided limited text book purchase assistance each semester.
