OCC Cares is an initiative meant to connect students with resources for basic needs to positively impact their well-being and college success. It is our goal to keep our students, staff and the community as safe as possible while providing continued service during this critical time by limiting exposure to the COVID-19 virus. As a result, OCC Cares has transitioned online to help our students during these difficult times.
