Welcome to SDCCE Cares

SDCCE CARES is a comprehensive basic needs program designed to help students meet fundamental needs of food, housing, transportation, childcare, health care, and mental wellness.

We connect students to dignified, accessible, and timely resources that will allow students to live well and thrive while completing their educational goals. We offer on- and off-campus support programs and services to assist our students in meeting their basic needs.

Basic Needs Support Request Form

If you need support with access to food, housing, transportation, technology, or other basic needs, we encourage you to fill out this form. This form will be used to connect you with resources related to your identified areas of need.

Paper applications are available from the Office of Student Affairs upon request.
