A representative from Anderson-Cottonwood Christian Assistance in the State of California believes that the most obvious qualified yet underserved population is people on Supplemental Security Income with dependent children and grandparents caring for their grandchildren both with and without a formal guardianship agreement. Both outreach and advocacy for these groups is sorely lacking. The benefits of cash aid, Medicaid eligibility for the children, and food stamps would help these families immensely.
