CARE at Lane & Community Resources

Welcome to CARE

Community Advocacy and Resource Education (CARE)

Community Advocacy and Resource education (CARE) logo

CARE at LCC aims to serve the whole student! We are here to connect you to basic need resources to help address any barriers you may be facing that are preventing you from being successful in your academic journey. Every student at Lane is welcome to access CARE services. We can help you apply for public benefits such as SNAP, OHP, navigate housing search, childcare, and other basic need resources in the community.

Come see us during CARE Drop In hours! (no appointment needed)
