Family Health and Nutrition

Food Pantry

The Center has a Food Pantry to assist families with children under 18, seniors, and disabled individuals. Those eligible can receive emergency food up to once per month.

Access to Food Programs

In addition to the Center’s own Food Pantry (available for families with children, seniors, and disabled individuals), our advocates can help connect community members with other food programs including CalFresh/Food Stamps, Commodities, Gleaners, Senior Sack, and local church-sponsored food pantries. We also have a limited number of $25 gift certificates to the Frazier Park Market available through our EF&S program.

CalFresh/Food Stamps Application Assistance

Our advocates can assist you in completing CalFresh/Food Stamps applications and faxing them to DHS. We can advise you on the necessary documents to gather and send in order to move your application forward.

Medi-Cal and Covered California Enrollment

The Center has several Certified Enrollment Counselors on staff that can assist you in applying for Medi-Cal and Covered California. We can help you understand the health insurance options available to you, advise you on the necessary documents to submit, fax required documents, and assist in completing follow-up paperwork.

Medicare Assistance

Once a month, a HICAP representative is available at the Center to assist seniors with Medicare and prescription questions and issues as well as other general insurance issues. In addition, our Adult Advocate is available weekly to help with these matters.

Dental Care

Our advocates can advise you on available dental programs and benefits, including Denti-Cal, the Medi-Cal dental program, which was recently expanded to include both adults and children. We also have referrals for reduced rate and sliding-scale dental services.
