How We Can Help

Food Link 

Onondaga Community College has a food link located in the Community Care Hub that is open to all students (on/off campus and workforce development students).  We can provide you with food assistance short-term while we connect you with community and government resources that will help you with food assistance long-term. The Food Link is open every Monday and Thursday from 2-4pm and Tuesday and Wednesday 4-6pm throughout the academic year. Individuals can schedule appointments online or in-person to streamline access, avoid long lines and to provide a personalized approach service.    

To schedule an appointment email: communitycare@sunyocc.edu, walk-in, or call 315-498-2801         

Transportation Assistance

If you’re having difficulties coming to and from campus to attend to your academic schedule, we can work with you to identify and receive transportation assistance. We will work with you to help identify options and resources to make getting back and forth to campus less stressful. 

Financial Planning

Do you have trouble making sense of your finances? Come to the Community Care Hub for assistance planning out your finances so you can pay for school. We can help you identify the best way to utilize your resources so you can stay in school. Financial literacy workshops will be available throughout the academic year.

After graduation you may be interested in purchasing your first home. The Community Care Hub would like to help you by providing home buyers education courses throughout the academic year.

Healthcare

Onondaga Community College can’t provide you with health insurance, but we can connect you with resources that will assist in navigating the process and help you understand your affordable healthcare options. 

For Pregnant and Parenting Students

The Community Care Hub can help you find daycare and ways to afford these services while attending college.  We can also connect you to community resources for parents that are specifically designed to help reduce the stress associated with finding affordable child care.

Tax Preparation

The Community Care Hub provides access to free tax preparation services and secures accountants who will work with you one-on-one to complete your tax return during the tax season.

Scholarships

The Community Care Hub provides scholarships to students that qualify for books, tuition, and supplies. Check with our staff to see if assistance can be provided for you.
