As the federal shutdown soon heads into its fourth week, representatives of the Community Services Agency of Los Altos and Mountain View are urging furloughed civil servants to make use of its aid programs and services.
CSA provides a variety of social services, including a food pantry, rental assistance and a variety of other aid programs for low-income households. Eligibility for these programs varies, but it is typically based on an individual's income.
Furloughed government employees who are experiencing a pay freeze should be eligible for various forms of assistance, said CSA executive director Tom Myers. He encouraged anyone seeking help to call at 650-968-0836
