Fresno City College is now accepting applications for a program that aims to help single parents get through school.

The CARE (Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education) program entitles eligible students to receive a number of academic and financial services including counseling, priority registration, tutoring, a textbook allowance, grants, meal cards, gas cards or bus passes and more.

To be eligible for CARE assistance, students must also meet the requirement for EOPS (Extended Opportunity Program and Services). Students must be enrolled in 12 units or more, receive cash aid through TANF or have an active CalWORKs case number, be at least 18 years old and are the single head of household.

The CARE office is located within the EOPS office on the first floor of the Student Services Building (ST-101). For more information contact Jeanine Castle or Ernie Garcia at (559) 442-8231. The application can be found at

Applications will be accepted until all openings are filled. The Fall Semester begins Aug. 15.
