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.

If you're looking for support focused more on your courses, you can turn to your Academic Advisor and there are plenty of additional supports in our Academic Support Center, also! 

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. 

Current hours are listed below or by appointment.  

Summer hours: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 10am -12 pm


Career Closet

Opening Summer 2022!

The Hawks Care Career Closet aims to provide all students access to new and/or 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 with the highest need from looking and feeling their best during the internship and job search process.

Who does this serve:

  • Currently enrolled students at Harper
  • 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

In order to make sure each student has enough time to shop and find what they're looking for appointments are needed to shop the closet. Please call our main line, listed below, to set up a time.

If you would like assistance learning how to properly iron clothing or tie a tie, please let us know when you call to schedule.
