About Palomar CalWORKs

CalWORKs (California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids) is a state-funded program that assists welfare recipient students and those in transition off of welfare to achieve long-term self-sufficiency .
At Palomar CalWORKs, students are assisted by a knowledgeable and compassionate staff as they create new opportunities for themselves and their children through education.  To support students in this process, Palomar CalWORKs provides a variety of services to foster emotional well-being, academic and career preparedness, and a sense of student community. 
At Palomar CalWORKs, we believe supporting student success is about supporting the ‘whole’ student.

In an effort to support social distancing and to prevent potential exposure to COVID 19, beginning Monday, March 16th, our office will offer all appointments by phone or video chat utilizing the Zoom platform.  We want to encourage you to utilize phone or video conference out of an abundance of caution.
