What is CARE?

The Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) program is a state funded program for single parents attending Allan Hancock College.  The CARE program works in conjunction with EOPS to provide support services to students who receive CalWORKs (state cash aid) benefits in the household.  In addition, Allan Hancock College is home to the first and only CARE center established in the State of California.  At the CARE Center students are welcome to come in for tutoring sessions, utilize our computers and print for free, see their academic counselor, and they can bring their children to play in our children’s nook.  The CARE Center is a child friendly environment where all CARE students are welcome and have a place to call home at Allan Hancock College.

"I've enjoyed the wine courses here at Hancock. I have gained a better understanding and knowledge of the industry, specifically in the enology program. I hope to transfer to Cal Poly to major in ag business. The effort and partnership between our professors, the industry, and the universities make Hancock the perfect pathway for the full-time student or individual who wants to be part of the wine industry."
