COVID-19 EOPS/CalWORKs UPDATES

The EOPS/CARE/CalWORKs/FYRST Office will be closed December 21- January 1 in observance of Winter Break.

OVERVIEW

CalWORKs (California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids) is a state-funded program that assists welfare recipients and those in transition off of welfare through education and training.

MISSION 

CalWORKs supports student parents who are changing their own lives, two generations at a time.

VISION 

At Palomar CalWORKs, students are assisted by a knowledgeable and compassionate staff as they create new opportunities for themselves and their children through education.  To support students in this process, Palomar CalWORKs provides a variety of services to foster emotional well-being, academic and career preparedness, and a sense of community amongst other student parents. At Palomar CalWORKs, we believe student success is achieved by supporting the ‘whole’ student.
