Student needs are greater than ever
These needs are real and profound. Last winter, CCC asked for blankets to help students living in their cars. Clatsop, along with most other community colleges in the Oregon Community College Association, also commissioned a study of the student body through Temple University. The results are, frankly, disturbing. Food and housing insecurity are affecting more students than ever. The pandemic is making it worse.
The study indicates that 63% of the 110 Clatsop Community College students who participated are impacted in some way. Specifically:
- 40% have had food insecurities in the past 30 days.
- 54% have been impacted by housing insecurity in the previous year.
- 20% have been homeless in the previous year.
A message from our CCC Foundation Chair, Cliff Fick, regarding the needs of our student.
Your help is needed to assist our deserving students in achieving their education goals and to become contributing members of our community.
