Community Assistance Resource for Everyone (C.A.R.E.) Centers
At Lone Star College-Houston North, we believe that with the right structure and adequate support, our students are capable of succeeding academically and professionally. For this reason, we have Community Assistance Resource for Everyone (C.A.R.E.) Centers that are located at all LSC-Houston North Locations.
Who is the CARE Center open to?
The CARE Center is open to any currently enrolled LSC-Houston North Student.
CARE Center Offerings
The centers will provide the following types of items to help support our studentsí needs: food, toiletries, and other essentials. Students can access CARE bags and CARE packages.
CARE bags can be given to students daily and include general ready to eat snacks and meals to ensure that the student is as productive as possible before class or study sessions instead of worrying about their hunger.
Students may receive a CARE package weekly and this will include canned goods, detergent, toiletries and other household items.
Hours and Locations
Due to the Coronavirus, our Care Centers are currently closed to visitors. You may make an appointment for pick up by providing a list of needs. Lone Star College-Houston North has four locations with Care Centers close to you.
We have been working to provide wraparound services during this challenging time. While we do not have resources to help every student, we can provide some assistance to students as needed. We can continue to help students with hot meals, emergency aid, and technology.
Recently, we surveyed students from the three existing locations and found that approximately one-third would utilize a food pantry at least twice per week if one was available on campus. Therefore, we are requesting your assistance. We have started a Feeding the Future initiative to fill food pantries at all LSC-Houston North locations.
PLEASE NOTE: We can only accept donations with the expiration dates noted on individual items.
Thank you, but we are UNABLE TO ACCEPT: baby food, baked goods (bread, cookies), used clothing, dented cans or crushed boxes, fresh food, frozen or refrigerated food, glass items, any used or opened containers, expired items or food items without expiration dates, large commercial bags of items (rice, grains), non-professional clothing.
