      In collaboration with various KSU departments such as Admissions, Financial Aid, Campus Housing, etc., CARE provides case management, access to the campus pantry, personal care items and assists in accessing temporary and/or permanent housing.

      Lastly, through Embark Georgia, CARE serves as the University System of Georgia Designated Single Point of Contact (DPOC) for homeless and foster care students.

      When did CARE start?

       
      • KSU’s first homeless student was identified in the 1980’s, however it wasn’t until 2006 when a student fainted in a classroom that efforts were made amongst university faculty and staff to address the issue. After speaking with the student it was discovered that she had not eaten for several days due to financial and situational constraints. As a result, KSU Student Health Services and the Staff Senate began a campus pantry entitled Feed the Future.
