The CalWORKs Parents Program

Lifting Glendale families out of poverty through education!

We believe parents receiving welfare can become economically independent by receiving training, a degree or certificate, practice working in a professional environment, and encouragement and advocacy.

We believe children of welfare parents will thrive as a result of seeing their parents succeed in school and at work.

We are proud of our students and believe in their bright, prosperous, and happy futures.



If you are a CalWORKs student, we are here to help you build a life for yourself and your children on a foundation of education.

If you are a County Worker,
we are here provide your participants with the training they need to be in compliance with GAIN and to move towards self-sufficiency. 

If you are member of the GCC faculty, we are here to facilitate the services that will help your CalWORKs students complete your classes successfully.
