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.

Arturo Avila

Arturo Avila
Science Instructor, PVHS

One of the obstacles that I had to overcome was breaking the language barrier. Another obstacle I faced was financial hardship. As I completed my classes at AHC, I had to work in many part-time jobs such as a math/science tutor for the college tutoring center, night shift clerk for a local grocery store and vegetable cooling. Also, the MESA program and the STEM Center, not only supported me academically through resources such as access to books and computers, but also through working with students with interest in mathematics, science and engineering.
