Overview of the Program

  The Fresno Center has contracted with the County of Fresno’s Department of Social Services (DSS) are targeted to provide mental health treatment to families who are recipients of California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) Welfare-to-Work (WTW) benefits. The services are for clients with mild to moderate mental health symptoms in the city of Fresno and rural Fresno County.

The goal of the program is to remove mental health barriers to employment that assist mental health services, resulting in clients engaging in school, employment, or approved WTW activities; thus, resulting in clients transitioning from welfare to work in obtaining training and education.
