EOPS Student Success

Are You a Single Parent?

CARE (Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education) is part of EOPS. CARE focuses on the special needs of single parents receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).

EOPS/CARE staff act as liaisons with the State Department of Social Services, CalWORKs, and other community agencies to make your educational experience a positive one.

You are eligible for CARE support if you

  • are the single head of your household
  • a TANF recipient
  • meet EOPS eligibility

It is our commitment to extend support services to CARE students to help them achieve their educational goals at Foothill College. The concept of "over & above" in assisting CARE students is embraced and exercised among our dedicated staff.
