Hungry and Homeless in College
Food and housing insecurity among the nation’s community college students threatens their health and wellbeing, along with their academic achievements. Addressing these basic needs is critical to ensuring that more students not only start college but also have the opportunity to complete a degree.
The first report, Wisconsin Hope Lab Study: Homeless and Hungry presents findings from the largest survey ever conducted of basic needs insecurity among college students. This study represents more than 33,000 students at 70 community colleges in 24 states. While this is not a nationally representative sample of students or colleges, it is far greater in size and diversity than prior samples and provides information to shed new light on critical issues warranting further research.
Community College of Philadelphia was one of the colleges participating in the Wisconsin Hope Lab Study. The second report, Hungry and Homeless in College Report, compares CCP results with aggregated results from the other colleges in the northeast region of the country and from the national survey sample.
