The Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) Program is a supplemental component of Extended Opportunity Programs & Services (EOP&S). CARE is designed to provide educational and economic support services above and beyond what is provided through county and campus support services to single parents who have a child 13 years of age or younger, and are receiving TANF. CARE services may include:

  • Economic Services
  • Additional Book Vouchers
  • Additional Bus passes
  • Parking Permits
  • Gas Cards
  • Meal Tickets
  • Child Care reimbursements
  • Educational Support Services
  • Student Educational Plan
  • Career Planning
  • Exploring Immediate and Long Term Goals through workshops
  • Counseling
  • Priority Registration
  • University Transfer Services
  • Peer Mentoring

CARE students benefit from a variety of academic and economic services. CARE strives to enhance self-esteem, develop college skills, and assist students in achieving their academic goals. Many of our students not only benefit from the services provided, many go farther than they dreamed possible.
