Legal and Financial Assistance
It can be stressful to deal with legal and financial issues. Your case manager may be able to connect you to resources in the community that can help, such as:
General Assistance: GA programs are run by counties or cities to help eligible adults who don’t have enough money to pay their basic living costs.
Disability Income: If your medical provider has said that you are unable to work, you might qualify for disability income. Your case manager can refer you to local agencies that can help you with enrollment in these benefits.
TANF and SNAP: If you have a low income and you have children, you may be eligible for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) through the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). Your case manager can help you navigate the application process.
