About this grant

Mott Community College, through its Lenore Crowdy Family Life Center, helps address the basic needs of its students with a food pantry, clothing closet and broad array of social service providers. Many of the college’s students are low income, sometimes just above the threshold for which they would qualify for state benefits. These extra supports help students stay in school and complete their studies, preparing them for successful futures.
