COA Cares

COA Cares is a program created in partnership with the COA community to help provide support to our students. Research shows that roughly 45 percent of college students face food insecurity each month, with that number growing at the community college level. COA Cares’ mission is to provide student support and resources to help ensure success on their path to graduation and as they enter the workforce or transfer to a four-year institution.

How COA Cares Helps

  • Maintaining on-site food pantries accessible to students on our four campuses
  • Providing a student Career Closet for interviews and other employment needs
  • Coordinating internal and external referral services
  • Offering school supplies

How You Can Help

COA Cares is grateful for your support! You can help students in need by donating:

  • Money to the COA Cares Fund through the COA Foundation
  • Non-perishable food and goods
  • Clean, gently-used business attire to our Career Closet
  • School supplies such as pens, paper and notebooks
