At DPSS CalWorks the HCM will help you apply for Section 8, give information on food pantries and free clothing, low income housing listings, and shelter referrals. The HCM will also be able to speak to the school district on your behalf to keep your child in school and receive school supplies, transportation and uniforms.
Ideally the HCM is your advocate and partner in navigating homeless services. If you don’t know what you need, simply explain your situation to the HCM and discover the resources together.
To speak to a Homeless Case Manager: ask your Eligibility Worker for a referral when you are in the office and a same day appt. will be scheaduled.
