Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Public Charge was the main concern our community had. Now with COVID-19, we are seeing many layoffs, furloughed workers or reduction in work hours/pay. This specific client had Medi-Cal for her two children and even though, due to their household income, the children met Calfresh criteria, Concepcion did not want to apply for she was under the assumption that it would hurt her chances of one day becoming a Permanent Resident. At the time, they applied for Medi-Cal, Fernando tried to assure her it would not affect her status for the Calfresh since it was for her children and not for her, however, she still decided not to apply. Weeks later, Fernando received a call from Concepcion stating that they drastically reduced her hours at work that now she does not care if she does not ever become a Permanent Resident. In her words, “I don’t care about that anymore, I just need to feed my children.” Even though, it will not affect her, it’s really amazing and sad that as a parent, she is willing to abandon her dream of becoming a PR to just have assistance in providing food for her and her children. Fernando went ahead and assisted her with not only Calfresh but CalWORKs as well.
