Resources - Designed by Students for Students
Exciting, innovative new resource designed by students for students and features first-person accounts of students who overcame challenges to going to college such as peer pressure, lack of family support, and financial barriers.
2-1-1 from Eden I&R, Inc.
2-1-1 is a free, confidential, 3-digit telephone number that provides all Alameda County residents easy access to health, housing and human services information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year, in English, Spanish and 150 other languages. While 2-1-1 serves all, it is an especially valuable resource for vulnerable populations such as single parent families and very low-income households, frail elders, people with disabilities, re-entry population, caregivers, runaway youth, non-English speakers and those who are in need of such vital resources as emergency housing, food, financial assistance, healthcare, childcare and legal assistance. 2-1-1 is also a critical public communications tool during recovery efforts after a disaster.

Resources for Your Family
CalFresh formerly known as SNAP or Food Stamps
The CalFresh Program, formerly known as Food Stamps and federally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) https://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/supplemental-nutrition-assistance-program-snap, can add to your food budget to put healthy and nutritious food on the table. The program issues monthly electronic benefits that can be used to buy most foods at many markets and food stores. The amount of the benefit is based on the size of your household, your income, and your housing expenses. CalFresh benefits come on a plastic card, called the Golden State Advantage Card, which you can use just like a bank card at most food stores.
Managing Your Money
Personal finance is a popular subject on many blogs. It’s also an important subject for students, and they can learn from the information and tips discussed on many personal finance blogs. Because students are more likely to get information from their favorite blogs rather than the daily newspaper, financial literacy educators might want to guide their students to some of these blogs.
