The Cal Poly Pomona Broncos Care Program is a comprehensive campus-wide Basic Needs’ initiative that serves students experiencing housing instability, food insecurity, and other emergency/crisis situations.

The program goals are to provide students in need with:

  • Food resources
  • Housing support
  • Emergency funds
  • Case-management support

All of these areas play a critical role in a student’s academic success, health and wellbeing.  This is a campus-wide prevention and early intervention program hosted by the Division of Student Affairs
