CalWORKs is blending with EOPS/Care to Become CaFE Centers!

    We’re making some exciting changes!  Cuesta College Student Services is proud to announce the opening of the CaFE Centers on the San Luis and North County Campuses.  The CaFE Centers blend programs that we’ve had in the District for decades, CalWORKs and EOPS/CARE, as well as, add a new service component for foster youth.  The CaFE Centers are located in facilities formerly housing the EOPS/CARE and CalWORKs programs and will be staffed with familiar faces. 

   NOTE: CaFE is an acronym; Ca-CalWORKs, F-Foster Youth, E-EOPS/CARE that identifies the bringing together of multiple services without the stigma associated with any individual program.  Be on the lookout for an invitation to our grand “re-openings” sometime this summer/fall.

   Please continue to refer students to our programs via the CaFE Centers and feel free to call or come by with questions. If you have been given a referral to Cuesta College by the Department of Social Services, please contact us at one of the numbers below to schedule your Intake appointment. You can also start the CaFE center application below.  Please contact our office if you have any questions.  We look forward to working with you to achieve your educational goals!
