Education for Everyone

Every person deserves an education that matches their ambition. With your help, finances don't have to be a barrier for our students.

The California community college system serves more students than any other higher education system in the state – and at the lowest cost. However, California community college students have some of the greatest need. For example:

  • 42% of students are food-insecure
  • 22% of students skipped meals for three or more days because they didn't have enough money for food
  • 46% of students are housing-insecure

At Los Rios:

  • 20,404 students are below the poverty line
  • 16,598 students are low-income
  • 18,417 students are the first in their family to attend college
