Mission Statement

We Connect, a national program founded by former First Lady Maria Shriver and now run by The California Endowment that connects families to programs and services that can help them lead healthier, more financially secure lives.

Services include:

  • Free Tax preparation
  • Health care application assistance
  • Flu Shots & Dental Screenings
  • Deferred action for childhood arrivals & other naturalization information
  • Access to local programs & resources
  • Other money saving programs & services
  • ALL PROGRAMS & SERVICES ARE FREE!

Description

WE Connect embraces The Endowment's efforts to challenge conventional wisdom that health solely happens in the doctor's office. For WE Connect, it means connecting families to money-saving programs such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which helps put money back in the pockets of those who need it most. It also means connecting families to resources that make access to healthy food a reality, such as CalFresh and WIC. It also means connecting families to low-cost and no-cost health coverage. A new health care law, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), is helping families and small businesses access more affordable prevention-based coverage.
