The CARE Program at SBCC (Coordinated Agencies Resources for Education) serves single parent students with funds for childcare, book grants, school supplies, and counseling of both an academic and personal nature. According to the Department of Education's latest survey, 13% of the nation's 16.5 million students enrolled in higher education programs are single parents. They seek to better their lives and those of their children by starting or returning to college, which can be financially challenging. These students must be able to be confident that during their classroom hours that their children are in a safe, supportive environment. Hence, childcare assistance is essential.
