Application Assisters

What are CalFresh Application Assisters?

CalFresh Application Assisters often serve as a bridge between the community they serve and the Department of Public Social Services (DPSS), by helping their communities better understand the benefits of participating in the CalFresh Program and how CalFresh can help them purchase food for themselves and their families. 

CalFresh Application Assisters play a very important role in connecting eligible residents to CalFresh benefits by conducting outreach and providing CalFresh application assistance to those residents who need help.  In Los Angeles County, CalFresh Application Assisters help low income households in their communities apply for CalFresh benefits and submit required documents to the DPSS preferably online.
