Basic Needs Center
Welcome to the Basic Needs Center!
We support with all the essential resources needed to not only survive, but thrive here at Cuesta College. Whether you are a student, staff, or faculty, our mission is to support you as we work together towards justice and belonging for all.
What are Basic Needs?
We define Basic Needs as the essential resources that impact your holistic health, belonging, persistence, and overall well-being. It is an interconnected ecosystem that includes:
- Nutritious Food
- Stable Housing
- Mental Wellness
- Financial Sustainability
- Emergency Needs for Students with Dependents
As such, we refuse to accept hunger, homelessness, and all other basic needs injustices as part of our college and community.
WE BELIEVE IN BASIC NEEDS JUSTICE FOR ALL
Cuesta Students can also access the SSSP HUB on their Canvas Dashboard for immediate access to resource information. For help with resources not listed, please contact Donna Howard, 805-546-3192 or email@example.com.
