Resources for the Unemployed

This is a list of resources my family has found helpful while dealing with the problems of being unemployed and/or underemployed.

California Employment Development Department – Unemployment claim filing for California residents.

U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs – Unemployed veterans may apply for low or no cost medical care.

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development – This is an interactive list with links to local housing agencies where you can apply for housing assistance (section 8).

California Department of Health Care Services – Application for Medi-Cal or Healthy Families for California residents.

California Department of Social Services (CalFresh) – Food stamps application for California residents.

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – An interactive list of community health clinics nationwide which provide sliding scale care to the uninsured.

Feeding America – An interactive list of food banks nationwide.

In addition, look for food banks and other services run by churches in your area.
