Services :: CalWORKs & Supported Employment

CalWORKs is a federal and state-funded program that helps unemployed adults, who are caregivers of minors, reduce their mental health barriers to employment and increase self-sufficiency. This program offers assessment, mental health treatment, and supported employment for families on public assistance.

The Guidance Center’s Supported Employment program offers employers a customized employment service that will help locate and retain employees who will best fit the positions in a company.  Job applicants receive job support through our highly trained Employment Specialist. This Specialist takes the time to understand the company’s needs, environment, and culture.  

Through these partnerships, our clients find meaningful, competitive employment that provides a paycheck for them and a loyal, hardworking employee for the company.

CalWORKs and Supported Employment are offered at our Compton and Long Beach Clinics.
