CARE Program History
In 1982, the State of California established the Cooperative Agencies Resources for
Education (CARE) program in the California Community Colleges as a "unique educational
program.” The program aimed to provide supportive services to single parent students
receiving cash aid assistance in order to help them achieve their goals in higher
education. Initially, CARE began with fifteen programs and currently has a home in
all 113 community colleges in the State of California.
