An honor to celebrate the grand opening of the new Riverside County Social Services building in Desert Hot Springs.
The Department of Public Social Services will lease the new 38,000-square-foot facility for the Self-Sufficiency Division. The full‑service office will allow clients to get help with temporary assistance programs that include CalWORKs, CalFresh (food stamps), Medi-Cal and Welfare‑to‑Work (GAIN) program assistance.
Auxiliary services such as employment services, child care, Housing Support Program and Family Stabilization Services will also be offered.
The new facility will allow the department to consolidate its operations by closing a smaller existing office in Desert Hot Springs, located at 14-201 Palm Dr., Ste. 110, and a few office suites in Cathedral City. The new location will start with 90 employees, with the potential to increase staffing in the future.
This building is part of a new shopping center that will be rented out to businesses.
The building was developed by Tahiti Partners Property Corporation.
Thanks to our late Supervisor, John Benoit, for making this project happen and to our newly appointed supervisor Manuel Perez for continuing your partnership with Desert Hot Springs.
