History

California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) – As a result of the 1997 federal welfare reform, the CalWORKs Program was established across all California community college campuses in 1998.  This new welfare-to-work program is designed to promote self-sufficiency and personal responsibility.  Under this program, community colleges statewide were allocated funds in order to expand existing services and provide the needed educational opportunities for CalWORKs Students.
