​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 EOP&S.

Eligibility check list

To be eligible for CARE a student must be:

    • An EOP&S student
    • At least 18 years old
    • Considered a single head of household parent (single, divorced, separated, widow, etc.)
    • Currently receiving cash aid from CalWORKs/TANF for themselves or their children


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.
