The CalWORKs Program is designed specifically for parents who want to pursue higher education. CalWORKs (California Work Opportunities and Responsibility to Kids) is a Program that helps student parents gain an Associates Degree or a Certificate while providing supportive services that enable you to be successful in college.
We work with the State and County of Santa Clara to assist you with services that help to make college accessible for low-income parents.
