CARE

​Welcome to CARE

Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) is an additional program that further serves EOP&S students who fulfill the CARE criteria. The CARE program also provides services beyond those
offered through EOPS.


To be eligible for CARE a student must:

  • Be an EOPS student
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Be considered a single head of household parent (single, divorced, separated, widow, etc.)
  • Currently receiving cash aid from CalWorks/TANF for  themselves or their children
  • Have at least one child under the age of 14

Services

CARE provides the following services:

  • CARE Grants:  Grants are given to the student to assist with the high cost of childcare.

  • Monthly Meal Tickets:  Get something to eat before you go to class at the school cafeteria.

  • Monthly Gas Card:  A gas card to help you offset the rising prices of gasoline so you can get to school.

  • School Supplies:  Need a notebook, pencil?  CARE will provide you with the essentials to begin your first day of class ready.

  • Book Voucher:  CARE provides funds to cover additional costs of the books EOP&S was unable to cover.

  • Lending Library:  Don’t buy – borrow your book from our lending library and stretch your book voucher.

  • Referrals:  Having housing or transportation issues?  A CARE representative can give you referrals to on and off campus resources.

  • CARE Conferences:  This is a great time to meet other CARE students around the state.  Hearing that you are not alone is a great experience.
