Addressing the basic needs crisis is a priority for Bucks County Community College. Whether it’s food insecurity or homelessness, we know many of our students do not have what they need to meet their higher education goals. Basic Needs refers to the food, stable housing, and wellness security of our students at Bucks County Community College as well as community members. We have created support programs and resources that can assist our students in meeting their basic needs and promoting their academic success.
Basic needs security has been shown to have a direct impact on the mental-emotional-physical health, wellness, academic performance, professional development, and holistic success of our students. Bucks looks to increase accessibility to food, housing, mental wellness along with financial resources.
