Are You Leaving Money on the Table

February 3, 2020

Learn about important resources for you and your family.

For caregivers like us, it’s often a struggle just to get by. And though the wealthy are doing great in this economy, the gap between the rich and the poor in the United States is the largest it’s been in 50 years.

In 2020, it’s crucial that we elect leaders who understand this, who can make real change in the daily lives of hard-working providers like us.

In the meantime, low-income workers like IHSS caregivers need all the help we can get to make ends meet, but too often we don’t know when we are eligible for help. Did you know that over a million Californians are eligible for CalFresh (otherwise known as SNAP or food stamps) but are not claiming their benefits?
