Expanding Social Services Supports for Students

Too many Community College students struggle with food insecurity, homelessness, childcare issues, and mental health and wellness. These challenges limit students’ ability to stay enrolled in college and earn degrees and credentials. To address these needs, the New Jersey Council of County Colleges has partnered with statewide organizations to support the efforts of Community Colleges to provide holistic student supports so that students can succeed in their studies and complete their post-secondary credentials so they can obtain jobs and careers that provide economic mobility and contribute to the state’s prosperity.
