Cal-WORKs The Center’s Cal-WORKs Mental Health Supportive Services Program provides assistance specifically to adults receiving state financial assistance (now called Cal-Works — California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids). We offer initial assessment, individual and family therapy, psychiatry, a Life Skills Group to prepare clients for the workplace, case management, mental health skill building, and mindfulness skills training. All of these services are focused on helping clients achieve long-term self-sufficiency, whether through employment or advanced career training. Many of our clients have histories of trauma (survivors of domestic violence, childhood abuse, etc.) who are diligently making efforts to return to the workforce.
The Community Family Center, in partnership with other social service organizations, a public school, and an apartment management company, offers a wide variety of bilingual (Spanish/English) supportive services such as parent education programs, health insurance enrollment, and home visits to families residing in an impoverished area of Northridge.
