Homelessness and Hunger @ Community Colleges

The problems of homelessness and hunger were particularly apparent among African American students at community colleges. Some 31 percent of African American students – nearly one third of all African American students at community colleges – exhibited very low levels of food security, compared to 19 percent of non-Hispanic White students.
More than half of the African American students surveyed experienced housing insecurity, with 18 percent experiencing homelessness, compared to 35 percent housing insecurity and 11 percent homelessness among non-Hispanic white students.
