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

Graduating high school with honors and realizing I did not have the monetary means to go off to a university like I had always dreamed about felt like a setback. Being at a community college, for my first semester, felt like a detriment to my education. Despite this I began to reach out to other students and was referred by a student to a program called MESA. MESA has shaped my educational career. MESA has provided me with opportunities I would have otherwise missed on my own, an opportunity to work with other like-minded majors who have since become like family. With this kind of strong foundation I have been able to excel in my science, mathematics, and engineering courses.
