Our community colleges serve some of the most vulnerable students in all of California. 1 in 5 students are homeless. Over half are housing-insecure. Over a decade of working with low-income students both in the classroom and through my non-profit, I understand that students cannot take full advantage of an education if their basic needs are not being met. I am committed to making sure more resources are allocated for student basic needs. We must increase support for those who are housing and/or food insecure, foster youth, Dreamers, and undocumented students.
