Concerned about a Student?

While students are always able to make their own choices, awareness of available services can be beneficial. If you believe a student may be dealing with homelessness or are at risk of being homeless, food insecurity, and/or students previously or currently in foster care, encourage them to visit CARE online to schedule an appointment.

If you are unsure or thinking about approaching a student in need, email CARE Services first to request a consultation.

Add the Financial Hardship syllabus Statement

Any student experiencing a financial hardship and believes this may affect their academic success is urged to complete an Emergency Assistance Application with CARE Services. The Emergency Assistance Program supports students in overcoming unforeseen hardships hindering their academic progress. For help, go to Emergency Assistance or email

Public Benefits Assistance

Through a partnership with Catholic Charities Atlanta, we screen for eligibility and assist with the application for public benefits, namely for Food Stamps. The Food Stamps Program, or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), helps households that have limited income and resources to pay for the cost of food. A single individual, families, and individuals living together are eligible to receive food stamps if they meet certain requirements.
