Hawks Care Services for Students

 Hawks Care believes you shouldn't have to sacrifice your basic human needs to get an education.  Hawks Care Resource Center is here to help you connect to campus and community resources to meet those basic needs so you can focus on your academic goals.

 

Harper College is fortunate to have many area resources - you can browse these community-based resources anytime.  If you're wondering, "Where do I start?" or "What should I do?" that is why we are here!  Having a private conversation with someone who cares will help connect you to the right resources at the right time. 

Whether you are looking for food pantries, local housing programs, or need help finding other community resources for medical and mental health care, we can help.  Current students can submit a general inquiry here, and a member of the Hawks Care team will reach out to get you scheduled with our Resource Specialist.

For assistance with current or upcoming tuition costs or other bills owed to the college, we encourage you to speak with a Financial Aid Specialist to explore available financial aid options.

On Campus Pantry 

The Hawks Care pantry has limited non-perishable food items along with personal care essentials for currently enrolled students.  Students will need to show their Harper ID and confirm enrollment. 

Pantry shopping is available Monday - Friday 9am until 3pm, or by appointment. 

Laptop Loans

Hawks Care has a limited number of laptops available to loan for students who:
  • Have financial need
  • Have no other access to technology 
  • Course(s) require laptop/ Windows operating system

Currently enrolled students may request a laptop by completing this form

 

Career Closet

The Hawks Care Career Closet provides new and gently used professional attire for interviews, career fairs, networking events, and the workplace. The goal of the Career Closet is to remove financial barriers that may prevent students from looking and feeling their best during the internship and job search process. We serve students who are: 
 
  • Currently enrolled
  • Completed and received a Harper credential (within the last year)
  • Proof of interviewing for job/internship opportunity, have a job/internship, or plan to attend an upcoming job/career fair may be requested

Please call our office to reserve a time to shop!  If you would like assistance learning how to properly iron clothing or tie a tie, please let us know when you call to schedule.
