El Centro, California - Tuesday, the Imperial County Department of Social Services (ICDSS) will host an open house of their new Mobile Office unit during the Imperial County Board of Supervisors meeting in El Centro.  The Mobile Office will be available for viewing from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (noon) at the County Administration Center parking lot.

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 goals of the Mobile Office are to increase participation in the programs that improve quality of life and strengthen community partnerships by increasing access to services.

The ICDSS Mobile Office will be staffed by experienced program technicians who are able to complete eligibility determinations, process benefits applications and changes to active cases, receive documents for Medi-Cal and other Social Services programs remotely and enable ICDSS staff to supplement current outreach efforts.  Additionally, the mobile office can be utilized as a disaster response vehicle to efficiently respond to impacted areas throughout the county in the event of an emergency.

Residents of the Imperial Valley interested in receiving more information about the services provided at this mobile office are encouraged to attend.
