​Basic Needs​ & Wellness

Basic Needs and Wellness: Norco College believes that in order to learn, students need to have their basic needs met: food to eat and a safe place to live. If you face challenges securing food, housing, or other basic needs, you are not alone, and Norco College may be able to help during this time of crisis. We invite you to learn about the many resources available to support you by contacting basicneeds@NorcoCollege.edu or stopping by the Engagement Center in ST107. Students, staff, and faculty can drop in during open hours, grab a snack and talk with a BNW Ambassador for resources, ideas and strategies connected to their challenges and/or support completing the CalFresh application. Or for direct support contact, Kimberly Thomas, Supervisor of the Basic Needs and Wellness program.
