What are Basic Needs?

Basic Needs refers to the food, stable housing, and wellness security of our students at Ventura College as well as community members. We have created support programs and resources that can assist our students in meeting their basic needs and promoting their academic success. Basic needs security has been shown to have a direct impact on the mental-emotional-physical health, wellness, academic performance, professional development, and holistic success of our students. The Ventura College Basic Needs Office looks to increase accessibility to food, housing, mental wellness along with financial resources.  Contact the Basic Needs office today to see how we can help you!
