Need Determination and Referral

Katrina Jaggears, our Resource Specialist, provides initial and ongoing referrals to CalWORKs students after completion of a Family Needs Inventory. Barriers to success will be identified, and students will be referred to campus departments and off-campus agencies based upon individual need.

The Resource Specialist also assists CalWORKs students with FAFSA filing, financial aid disqualification petitions and other financial aid assistance.

The CalWORKs program at San Joaquin Delta College also offers a series of workshops called "Tools to Succeed", which are offered monthly during the Spring and Fall semesters, on varying topics of interest for CalWORKs students.

CalWORKs has also developed a very thorough Resource Directory, in collaboration with the Council for Early Care and Education of Children. The Community Connections Resource Directory for San Joaquin County is available online. Hard copies of the directory are available. For information on how to obtain copies of the Resource Directory, purchase them online here.
