How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

We have succeeded in garnering critical support to help prevent students from dropping out of school because of an emergency or unforeseen hardship. This type of support will continue to be a need for community college students who may be first generation students, balancing work-life, managing childcare and taking longer to complete their program, certificate or even one course.
