This outreach is a service designed to assist clients who receive Social Security Income (SSI) for disability and/or mental health problems to manage and budget their monthly checks. The GCRM operates the largest homeless focused non-profit Representative Payee Services program in San Joaquin County – overseeing accounts of up to six million dollars per year. Our approximately 600 SSI disability recipients need and deserve competent and sympathetic management of their funds.
Therefore, our purpose is to provide services that ensure the payment of rent, utilities and food needs first. Then we provide the recipient with funds that will provide for the purchase of their personal care items and services out of the clients remaining resources. Services are provided in a way that encourages and respects client dignity and participation in determining the use of their funds.
