The Program

Hawk CaresMany students face various issues ranging from food insecurity, to homelessness, to needing short-term emergency funding. We understand these needs may be greater than they were in the past. The Hawk CARES (Community and Academic Resources for Every Student’s Success) Program was created to address basic needs and provide resources to students at Cosumnes River College.
