HENDERSON, Ky (WEHT) – Henderson Community College hopes a new program will make it easier for people to pursue higher education. The college created a Care Center on campus that provides food and personal hygiene items.
All enrolled students are eligible. All they have to do is fill out a form detailing their needs. HCC says this is not income-based and does not affect a student’s financial aid.
Officials say the pandemic brought to light some of the challenges faced by students. They say food insecurity was a huge issue.
Students can use the Care Center once a month. It is open Monday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and Thursday from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Students can check in at the front desk of the Start Center, located on the second floor of the Sullivan Technology Center.
