Mrs. Lorna Bukasa (EOPS Counselor/CARE Coordinator)

Additional Supportive Services for Eligible Single Parents

The CARE program was established by the State of California to help welfare recipients become convinced that they and their children are important, that they are capable, and that with proper support they can break the welfare dependency cycle through education and job training. CARE is a supplemental component of EOPS that specifically assists EOPS students, who are single heads of welfare households with young children, by offering supportive services so they are able to acquire the education, training and marketable skills needed to transition from welfare-dependency to employment and eventual self-sufficiency for their families. Every CARE student is an EOPS student who must meet the eligibility criteria for both programs.


Students may be eligible for the CARE program if they satisfy the following requirements:

  1. JOIN EOPS– must be an active EOPS student, who has received a book-grant
  2. SUBMIT PINKAgency Certification Form – Available in ST-205. Take to case worker to complete and return to ST-205.

    This form verifies:

    • Single parent head of household
    • CalWORKs Cash Aid Recipient
    • Have at least one child 14 years of age or younger

     

  3. ATTEND A CARE ORIENTATION
