“The Homestretch” Screening Focuses On Homelessness On April 18

The College’s faculty & staff Committee for Diversity & Inclusion will focus on the issue of homelessness this month with a film and discussion on Monday, April 18, at 2:30 in Room 1103.

“The Homestretch” follows three homeless teenagers as they try to stay in school, graduate and build a future.

A study released in December 2015 —“Hungry To Learn: Addressing Food & Housing Insecurity Among Undergraduates “– found significant numbers of community college students among institutions surveyed experienced “high levels of food and housing insecurity.”

This semester the student Social Service Club with Professor Michelle White as the club’s advisor re-opened a food pantry on campus to aid students in need.
