Unaccompanied Student Support Services
The Office of Student Life in collaboration with the Financial Aid Office and the Academic Advising Center are launching the Unaccompanied Student Support Services program. This program was created to support transitioning, homeless students in meeting their higher education goals here at the Community College of Denver.
CCD has a designated SPOC (single point of contact) as do other state colleges and universities in Colorado. The purpose of providing a SPOC is to help unaccompanied youth qualify for financial aid in the absence of their parents' tax information and family support.
Eligible students will be assigned to a Human Service Peer Mentor who will stay in weekly contact, schedule in-office meetings and offer the necessary peer-to-peer coaching, support and resources until the student is successful in finding an adequate housing situation for themselves. In addition, CCD will provide care packages and assistance with books.
What defines an Unaccompanied Student?
At risk of being homeless: When a student's housing may cease to be fixed, regular, and adequate. For example, a student who is being evicted and has been unable to find fixed, regular, and adequate housing.
