*MTCC Helena College Student Success Food Pantry
Helena College, a comprehensive two-year college, is recognized as a responsive regional provider of educational opportunities, as a partner in economic and community development, and as a diverse and accessible community of learners. Helena College promotes excellence in education, maintains fiscal and operational integrity; and cultivates an environment of fellowship, inclusiveness, and respect. 20% of Helena College students receive Federal Pell Grant monies and 63% receive Financial Aid. Helena College serves 1,300 students and partners with the Helena Food Share, a local non-profit dedicated to combating food insecurity and hunger in Helena. Studies have shown that food insecure students do not succeed at the same rates as food secure students. Results from the Real College survey showed that 40% of Montana college students have experienced food insecurity since enrolling in post secondary education. By expanding the basic needs program, they provide access to education and resources to support the basic needs of students and their families. The goal of this project is to identify and develop partnerships with existing community resources to develop capacity to serve low-income students and improve their success. Focus areas of the project will include food security, housing security, childcare, and personal hygiene products for students. Montana Campus Compact (MTCC) serves as the intermediary for this project. MTCC is a CEO-led coalition of colleges and universities that support civic engagement, service learning, and volunteerism across the state. Every year we place cohorts of full-time, part-time, and summer AmeriCorps members with schools, colleges, nonprofits, and government agencies in Montana. The AmeriCorps projects we facilitate increase educational equity, break down barriers between higher education and community organizations, and address the root causes of poverty in communities across the state.
