CARE Program History

In 1982, the State of California established the Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) program in the California Community Colleges as a "unique educational program.”  The program aimed to provide supportive services to single parent students receiving cash aid assistance in order to help them achieve their goals in higher education.  Initially, CARE began with fifteen programs and currently has a home in all 113 community colleges in the State of California.

"My experience in Allan Hancock College's Fire Academy was phenomenal. I received a top-notch education from experienced instructors who were dedicated to training the next generation of firefighters. The hands-on training we received in the college's state-of-the-art facility was an amazing opportunity and prepared me for my current job as a firefighter for the Atascadero department of fire and emergency services."
