The Fullerton College CalWORKs Program is designed to promote self-sufficiency through education and employment. If you are currently receiving CalWORKs/GAIN (otherwise known as welfare or cash aid) for both yourself and your children, you may be eligible for our program. The CalWORKs Program serves students that are attending Fullerton College and the School of Continuing Education located at Wilshire and Anaheim.
