Homeless/Housing Insecurity Program (HHIP)

Having a place to call home is an essential part of a student’s success. A study by the Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice found that 19% of California community college students have been homeless in the past year and 60% have experienced recent housing insecurity.  The Homeless and Housing Insecurity Program (HHIP) at Barstow Community College is dedicated to assisting students who require stable housing, that way they can successfully work towards receiving a college degree. 

Services: Rehousing case management, rent subsidies, emergency housing grants, connecting students with college and community resources

Eligibility: Must be a BCC student that has completed 6 units or 2 noncredit courses in a program of study, have a 2.0 or higher GPA and meet the McKenny-Vento Definition of being homeless or housing insecure.  Meaning that you lack a fixed regular and adequate nighttime residence.
