Public Counsel CARES: Connecting Angelenos to Resources and Essential Services

Public Counsel CARES


Public Counsel CARES

 

What is Public Counsel Cares? 

• We bring volunteers together with families and individuals to help them navigate the public service system and meet their basic needs for shelter and food.
• We promote effective and efficient social services.
• We fight for the rights of people struggling with poverty or homelessness.

Public Counsel volunteers provide resources and information on benefits including General Relief, CalFresh (formerly known as Food Stamps), CalWORKs and Medi-Cal. In addition, we connect people to services that help people find a job, keep their home, escape domestic violence or recover from substance abuse.

The General Relief Advocacy Project is now Public Counsel CARES: Connecting Angelenos to Resources and Essential Services.

 

We’re making connections.

Los Angeles residents in need count on critical public services to feed their families or keep a roof over their heads. For nearly 25 years, Public Counsel has been on their side.

Public Counsel and our volunteers connect people to essential services, fight for people’s dignity and rights, and  care about their future. That's the mission of Public Counsel CARES – Connecting Angelenos to Resources and Essential Services.
