Orange County CalWINNING!
Submitted by: Matiny R. Hay-Bellinis
February 2006 when CalWIN was implemented, I felt so giddy. That day was like my first day of school. I was excited, nervous, and apprehensive, but most of all I wanted to grasp as much of CalWIN that I could from all the coaches out in my District. I wanted to find out what paperless meant in the world of CalWIN. I wanted to know what the benefits of CalWIN had to offer.
April 2007 WOW! CalWIN is amazing! After one year of CalWIN I can truly say, I am CalWINNING! I love the fact that CalWIN is paperless. My definition of paperless is NO FILING! I love it! I am an intake worker for General Relief and Food Stamps program. CalWIN allows me to be more productive at work without the anxiety of knowing that tomorrow I have to file. I can open a case once and have all notices of actions on file and have the case ready to go to continuing or suspense. When my clients call me inquiring about their EBT card, their benefit issuance, who their new worker is, states they didnt receive their QR7/GR7 I can answer their questions and print out their reports, print out their notices of actions all in one click without leaving CalWIN. I can truly say, CalWIN not only changed my work anxieties for the better, but it changed my workload. Thank you CalWIN!
