About the Program

All community colleges run support programs for students who receive CalWORKs, the state’s cash assistance program for poor families with children. Students do better when enrolled in these support programs, but completion rates are low. How can colleges help more CalWORKs students succeed? PPIC researchers Bonnie Brooks and Shannon McConville discuss how CalWORKs is working for students.

This research and event are supported with funding from the ECMC Foundation, the James Irvine Foundation, and the Sutton Family Fund.
