Homelessness can affect students in many ways. Along with not having a place to live, they struggle to find food and to meet their basic needs. KSU’s "Campus Awareness, Resource & Empowerment Center" (C.A.R.E.) is designed to offer support for students dealing with homelessness or who are at-risk of being homeless. The C.A.R.E. Center is comprised of several different services to support the success of each student. It also serves as a single point of contact for campus-wide services that can address the majority of their concerns.
The goals of the C.A.R.E. Center are:
- Serving as the single point of access for addressing many physiological and safety needs of homeless and at-risk of homelessness students
- Empowering students to meet their daily living needs, including homelessness
- Engaging the KSU campus and surrounding communities in a stigma reduction campaign regarding homelessness of higher education students
- Offering both on and off campus resources and service options to students
