CALEXICO — On Wednesday, September 7, the Imperial County Department of Social Services (ICDSS) will host an open house of its Mobile Office unit during the Calexico City Council meeting in Calexico.  The Mobile Office will be available for viewing from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in front of Calexico City Hall.

The open house is an opportunity to tour the new unit and learn about the services that will be provided by ICDSS staff to Imperial County residents in the county’s outlying areas.  The Mobile Office will allow ICDSS staff to complete eligibility determinations, process changes to active cases, issue benefits, and receive documents for Medi-Cal and other Social Services programs remotely.

In recognition of Child Support Awareness Month, the open house will also feature staff from the Imperial County Department of Child Support Services Office ready to serve the public and answer child support case questions, or to provide general information about child support services.

“The Social Services’ Mobile Office Open House is a method to outreach to Imperial County communities, specifically in Calexico tomorrow, to inform the public of the exemplary services the County of Imperial offers to its residents while removing barriers that prevent families or individuals from seeking and receiving public assistance that they are entitled to,” stated District 1 Supervisor John Renison.

District 5 Supervisor Ray Castillo said, “It’s our hope that residents take advantage of this opportunity and take the time to visit the Mobile Office to learn about local resources that are available to them.”

Residents of Calexico and surrounding communities interested in receiving more information about the services provided at this mobile office are encouraged to attend.
