CARE Program

The primary goal of the program is to provide single parents additional support to help them attain economic self-sufficiency by earning a degree, a certificate or to transfer to a four year college.

CARE (Cooperative Agencies and Resources for Education) is a program offered through EOPS for single parents who are receiving CalWORKs and who meet other eligibility criteria.
