I missed my phone call from DPSS. What do I do?

Depending on the information you have been provided by DPSS, if any, you will be asked to call your district office. The Fresno County office phone number is 1.855.832.8082.

I got a letter in the mail saying I missed my appointment, or I got a letter notifying me of an appointment after the date had already passed. What do I do?

Contact your caseworker listed on your letter to reschedule.
