News Services to Seniors: CalFresh and Home Safe


Providing services to California’s vulnerable populations is a key piece of the work that counties do daily to advance the well-being of our residents. This workshop will focus primarily on DSS’ new services for seniors and will highlight promising practices and lessons learned in expanding senior access to CalFresh, Home Safe and overcoming specific challenges in serving this growing and diverse population. In this workshop, we hope to share county best practices in implementing these new programs and further discuss how California has been able to better serve its vulnerable and growing senior population.
