Henderson Co. Community College opening its Care Center

HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - Henderson community college has opened a care center designed to help students with basic needs like food security.

School officials say the new HCC Care Center is open to any enrolled student. They say it’s not income-based and does not affect financial aid.

The staff there will also help those who need it in accessing campus and community resources, all in an effort to help them gain academic success.

It’s located in the Sullivan Technology Center, and students can check-in at the front desk.

“We know the academic barriers really well like tutoring assistance, but now we’re seeing the need is beyond that. Food insecurity is a huge issue our students are facing, so we’re blessed and excited to open a care center to meet that need for our students.” Chad Phillips, Dean of enrollment management.

If you would like to donate to the Care Center, you can call 270-831-9671 or you can donate online.

They’ll operate Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
