Linkages Program

Linkages is a program in CalWORKs that coordinates Child Welfare Services (CWS); Family Maintenance (FM) or Family Reunification (FR) plans; and, CalWORKs Welfare to Work (WtW) plans for families receiving services from both programs.  Linkages program facilitates access to a broad array of coordinated services for families with domestic violence, mental health issues, alcohol and drug abuse, and other barriers to self-sufficiency.  The program keeps the children safe by helping families to achieve self sufficiency, stability and well being through coordinated, family-focused partnerships.
