Over the long term, a college degree or certificate is an investment that can promote career advancement.  In the short term, some may find it challenging to try to make ends meet while in school.  

Financial Aid can help college students with the costs of attendance (including some living expenses).  However, students typically find that containing living costs is essential to keeping debt manageable and ensuring college success.  

Community Resources

Following is a list of some community resources that may be of assistance in that regard.
