Hello and welcome to Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) at Monterey Peninsula College!

CARE (Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education) is a collaboration between Monterey Peninsula College ,EOPS and the Monterey County Department of Social Services (MCDSS). It is a program designed to help students succeed in college.
