Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE)

Increase your potential with CARE!

Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) offers additional support services to EOPS students who are single parents on TANF (Transitional Assistance for Needy Families). The goal of the program is to help students break the welfare-dependency cycle by completing college-level educational training programs, and therefore, become more employable and economically self-sufficient.

To be eligible, a student must:

  • Be 18 years of age
  • Be single head of household
  • Be a current recipient of TANF/CalWORKs
  • Have at least one dependent child under the age of 18
  • Be enrolled as a full-time student upon admission into the program
  • Be an EOPS student


To become a CARE student:

  • Apply to San Bernardino Valley College
  • Apply and be eligible for Board of Governor’s Fee Waiver A or B
  • Apply to and be eligible for the EOPS Program
  • Take assessment test
  • Submit all high school and college transcripts (if applicable)

 The EOPS/CARE staff is committed to helping YOU during your studies at San Bernardino Valley College. If we don’t have the answer to your questions, we will find someone who does.
