Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) and CARE

EOPS and CARE provide support for low income or educationally disadvantaged students.  Qualified students EOPS receive one on one help with a number of  services, including:

  • Academic, Career and Personal Counseling
  • Instruction and referrals for tutoring.
  • Special attention is given to identify, plan, develop and achieve the academic, career and personal goals you would like to achieve.

CARE (Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education) Program For Single Parents

Another component of EOPS is the Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) program. This program provides educational support services for the academically under prepared, single parent population who are receiving benefits through CalWORKS/TANF and are EOPS eligible.
