California – General Assistance

It’s hard to get by as parents but it’s especially hard as a single mother with one income in the household. In these times and situations, extra assistance is needed at times and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Times are hard for some people and this so called recovery just isn’t happening fast enough for people so it’s no wonder extra assistance is required. Even some people who have been the most financially secure are feeling the effects these days.

Now you’re reached the point where you’ve accented that you do need some assistance but you’re not quite sure how to go about doing that. With that in mind, hopefully these links will provide you with the resources or at least an idea of how to get started and what is available for you.

With this website, you put in your city and it will link you to the programs available in your area. It will link you to the programs such as food stamps, medical services programs, cash assistance programs, and other programs that can help you and your children.

More times than not, if you don’t qualify for one program, you will qualify for another so don’t get discouraged if you fail to qualify for something.
