CalWORKs HVP Testimonials

"I was having a very hard time adjusting to having a new baby with postpartum depression, so it helped having someone come over and talk to me and having someone give me an ease of mind, it made it possible for me and my son to have such a close bond now."

"It has been helpful to me and my child - it has helped me because sometimes I feel alone, so it makes me feel that I am not. It makes me better understand things about my child and how she should be developing."
