The California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) program is a time-limited program that provides financial assistance to eligible needy families with (or expecting) children to help pay for housing, food, utilities, clothing, medical care, and other necessary expenses.
Generally, families are eligible to receive cash aid and services when:
- The eligible children are deprived of parental support or care due to:
- Unemployment/underemployment; or
- Continued absence of one or both parents.
- A needy or non-needy caretaker provides care for foster children.
