Resources for State Employees
If you are facing a particularly hard time, a number of local, community-based organizations help folks meet needs, including navigating benefits, counseling, medical case management and some cash assistance.
2021 California State Employees Food Drive
More than 670 state employees contributed to the 2021 State Employee Food Drive and all together donated over $73,061.50 to food banks throughout the state!
We are so grateful for everyone who participated in the food drive and helped make an impact in our local communities.
