We can end student hunger & homelessness.

Can we really call college free if students are facing hunger and homelessness? 

During the Pandemic,” the most recent report from our partners at the Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice, found that 3 in 5 college students are experiencing basic needs insecurity during COVID-19. 

To remain healthy and on track to graduate, students need reliable meals and safe, stable housing. This is why Rise builds basic needs advocacy campaigns and offers 1:1 support to students affected by COVID-19.
