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

"Deciding to go back to school to learn English and obtain my GED has been one of the most important decisions I ever made. My credit ESL instructors guided and helped me to adjust to my new life as a student. They understood me as a student and as a person. Being a full-time worker, a full-time student, and a mother of three was not easy, but my instructors encouraged me to keep going. They spent time with me revising my writing and giving me feedback to improve my English, even after class time. They made me feel welcome and proud of being a student later in life. Now, I am a Hancock graduate with three AAs and am currently attending Cal Poly. I'm here because my instructors encouraged me to never give up. My ESL instructors believed in me even before I started believing in myself. It has been a long and not so easy road but I now know that I can reach all my goals."
