CARE (Cooperative Agencies and Resources for Education)
CARE Club at OCC
The CARE Club at Orange Coast College is open to all OCC students who have an interest in helping single parents on campus. We organize events and fundraisers to benefit CARE program recipients, who are single parents attending Orange Coast College. In addition, the CARE students raise funds to help other community members in need, with the goal to pay it forward. These students are working to meet all of the demands of being full time students, but also have the additional stressors of working and being single parents.
It is the CARE Club mission to assist single parents in reaching their educational goals through support and financial resources as well as instilling a sense of self-esteem in its members by providing a forum for them to reach out and help others in need.
