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, or complete the  "Student Assistance Request" located in the student portal under the Advising and Counseling icon, then look for the Hawks Care section to find the link for our "Student Assistance Request."

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!
