Creating Caring Communities Student Organization
Creating Caring Communities strives to create a community for students that have been or still are in the foster care system, along with students that identify as independent. Here they can receive academic and social assistance with members that identify in the same community. Students in this organization act as peer mentors and use creative problem solving to help navigate some of the unique challenges this group faces.
This guide is designed to familiarize UConn students with different resources, departments, and programs to help them navigate their journey in college. This is not an exhaustive list of services, but it provides students with a starting point. Students should also visit https://uconn.edu/ for specific contact information for many of the services listed here and the CT Department of Children and Families http://www.portal.ct.gov/dcf for additional resources for foster youth.
