It is a program that CAHS is implementing, in partnership with other organizations, to make benefits more readily available for people that need them. EBO is web-based application that helps case managers and intake workers screen clients for ten benefits simultaneously, allowing them to have quick access to more services. You can find more information on the software here
, in a previous blog post.
We have big new today, as the system is finally alive and running! This means that people that goes to one of our partner organizations to ask for help applying for some DSS or DCF program will be able to get screened and get the paperwork filled automatically, having everything ready to apply.
Where can you refer your clients? Right now, these are our locations:
Junta for Progressive Action
Christian Community Action
/ Centro San José
If you give me a desk and a computer with an internet connection, I will be doing screenings furiously too
; so call me
a line if you need this service.
Right now we can scan for eligibility (and fill most of the forms) for six benefits: WIC, Husky A, Husky B, SNAP, EITC and energy assistance - and more programs are coming soon. So if you need a place to refer a client to help him get Food Stamps, you know where to send them - or you can drop me a line so I come to help as needed.
