We support students by:

  1. Spreading awareness, to students and their families, of essential needs insecurity;
  2. Centralizing information about resources to combat essential needs insecurity within one office;
  3. Providing application support for students;
  4. Streamlining an easy referral process to various resources; and
  5. Seeking and maintaining collaborative community partnerships.
