It is funded by the Imperial County CalWORKs Program and the contract is renewed on a yearly basis. The program provides CalWORKs Participants with the resources to acquire the knowledge and understanding of their abilities, life skills, and interests which are the primary ingredients for obtaining guidance and direction.
