We will provide an immediate response to questions from legal services programs regarding public benefit programs, laws, and regulations. CCWRO maintains current information on the status of pending or recently enacted state and federal legislation and regulations that we have identified as being important to our clients, members, and associates. CCWRO collects and disperses statistical information and analysis on the AFDC (aka CalWORKs), Food Stamps, Child Care and Welfare Employment programs.
Advice, co-counseling, and full representation.
CCWRO provides consultation, and co-counseling on issues relating to public benefit programs, such as: Aid to Families With Dependent Children (AFDC) aka CalWORKS, Food Stamps, General Assistance, SSI, Child Care and the Welfare Employment Programs.  CCWRO also will do welfare hearing Administrative Writs (CCP §1094.5) that will be filed in Sacramento before judges who are more familiar with the administrative process than judges in many other counties around the state.

CCWRO is looking the fact that tens of thousands of CalWORKs recipients and CalWORKs college students are not receiving the transportation supportive services that they are ENTITLED to.

There are also tens of thousands of CalWORKs working moms and dads who do not get transportation money by the county to which they are ENTITLED. We estimate that this unlawful behavior of county welfare departments costs CalWORKs families over $5 million a month. Meanwhile many of these families are hungry at the end of the month. This is unconscionable.

If you were working or participating in a welfare-to-work (WtW) activity and did not get transportation for any month that you needed, please complete the form below and get back to us.

PLEASE NOTE: CCWRO is not guaranteeing representation and is only investigating at this time. CCWRO must talk to you before deciding whether to represent you. Any representation will require a signed retainer agreement.
