    As a result of the recent changes and recommendations, we believe remote, on-line and over-the phone services, where applicable, would be a great step towards minimizing the spread of the virus.

In an effort to respond to this health risk proactively, DHA will be limiting the ways in which we provide services to our customers at our open office locations:

      • Resource Rooms/Career Centers – will be closed until further notice
      • Mail – Please use the drop boxes located outside the office. Receipts will be mailed to you.  Or, you can submit your documents online through mybenefitscalwin.org, or mail them to P.O. Box 487, Sacramento, CA, 95812
      • Applying for Benefits – You may apply for benefits online at www.mybenefitscalwin.org.  You will be contacted to schedule a Telephone Appointment.

  • Link to updated info for SFBFS
    Information in Spanish – attachment
    For additional food resources, please visit our Food Finder to find food distributions near you OR call (916) 456-19808am-4pm M-F for assistance (se habla espanol). It is important that you do not refer individuals to physically come to either SFBFS campus as we do not serve food at either location. The online Food Finder is updated in real-time as we learn of partner agency closures. Please do not create community lists from this information as it is changing daily. Visiting the site or calling is always best, staff answer calls and can tell callers the nearest distribution that is open that day.

For community members who are unable to physically attend a food distribution, they can designate someone to pick up food for them at any of our TEFAP distribution locations (listed on the Food Finder as USDA). For these distributions, clients unable to attend in person, can fill out an Alternate Pick up Form that they will send with the individual picking up on their behalf.
