CARE Program

The CARE Program is for single parent students who want to attend college.

CARE is designed for single parent students who participate in the EOPS program and receive CalWORKs/TANF assistance.

Our goal is to provide support and services to help overcome the extra obstacles that may be holding single parents back from attending college, obtaining a certificate or degree, and acquiring marketable career technical skills.
