How We Can Help

Food Link 

Community College has a food link (food pantry) located in the Community Care Hub that is open to all students (on/off campus and workforce development students). We can provide you with short-term food assistance while we connect you with community and government resources that will help you with long-tern food assistance. The Food Link is open every day from 8:30am to 4:30pm throughout the academic year. Individuals can schedule appointments to streamline access and avoid long lines.

To schedule an appointment email: [email protected], walk-in, or call 315-498-2801         

Financial Planning

Do you have trouble making sense of your finances? Come to the Community Care Hub for assistance planning out your finances so you can pay for school. We can help you identify the best way to utilize your resources so you can stay in school. Financial literacy workshops will be available throughout the academic year.

After graduation you may be interested in purchasing your first home. The Community Care Hub would like to help you by providing home buyers education courses throughout the academic year.

Healthcare

Onondaga Community College can’t provide you with health insurance, but we can connect you with resources that will assist in navigating the process and help you understand your affordable healthcare options. 

For Pregnant and Parenting Students

The Community Care Hub can help you find daycare and ways to afford these services while attending college.  We can also connect you to community resources for parents that are specifically designed to help reduce the stress associated with finding affordable child care.

Tax Preparation

The Community Care Hub provides access to free tax preparation services and secures accountants who will work with you one-on-one to complete your tax return during the tax season.
