The WEConnect program is a California State program to provide information to those families that may be eligible for a number of tax, education or other programs. The project is headed up by Maria Shriver, wife of the Governor, with major funding provided by corporate sponsorship.
Ms. Shriver has asked California libraries to provide the web link to the WEConnect site. Promotional materials are available. The website is available in English and Spanish. Please take a look at the site so you can assist our members if they should ask you about this site.
