The Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) program is integrated with the EOPS program. CARE offers additional supportive services to EOPS students who are single parents receiving public assistance in order to support their success. The CARE program is the combined effort of three agencies: the Department of Social Services, the Department of Employment and Cypress College. The hope is to break the welfare-dependency cycle by completing college-level educational training programs to become more employable and economically self-sufficient.

In addition to EOPS services, CARE services include:
Scholarship Opportunities
Specialized Workshops and Seminars
Networking Events
Food Vouchers
Transportation Assistance (Gas Cards & Bus Passes)
Child Care
Referrals to Campus and Community Based Services
