BEND, OR -- A recent survey of colleges across the nation shows 41-per cent of 602 COCC students surveyed had food insecurity in the past month. It also showed 22-per cent struggling with homelessness. The Vice President of Student Affairs, Alicia Moore, says they have partnered with Thrive Central Oregon to connect students in need to local resources…everything from food to health care and medical needs. Moore says Thrive Central Oregon operates from Warm Springs to La Pine and everywhere in between. Schluter says the non-profit will be a great asset to help COCC students to become successful.
