San Luis Obispo Help for Displaced Families
Article By: Jennifer Negrete, Employment Resource Specialist III, Atascadero
An apartment building was condemned in Atascadero displacing many families unexpectedly. The workers in the regional Social Services office used CalWIN to issue Temporary Homeless benefits to many of the families for temporary housing while they searched for new apartments to rent.
The following is a letter from the Atascadero Police Department sent to recognize one of the Employment Resource Specialists who used CalWIN extensively to issue benefits the same day. The entire office worked as a team with Jennifer as a lead worker.
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your assistance earlier this year. You were kind enough to offer your services to the many displaced families that were in need that day. Your professionalism and kindness were greatly appreciated. With your assistance, the day became a lot more manageable. Once again, let me express my thanks from the city’s staff, our department and the entire community.”
~Sergeant Allen (Atascadero Police Department).
