Ways We Can Help
Skip to Quick Links
The purpose of the Housing Insecurity Resources webpage is to provide the most up-to-date county and community housing resources available to assist Foothill College students who are facing homelessness or who are housing insecure.
Please Note: Foothill does not provide student housing nor do we act as a liaison to local apartment housing.

Housing Insecurity and Homelessness Defined
Are you a Foothill student who is housing insecure or homeless?
Housing Insecure and Homelessness Defined
Housing insecure means you are experiencing a set of broad housing issues and risk factors, including frequent moves, crowded living space, poor housing quality, or the inability to afford rent or bills.
Homelessness means you are absent of a place to live, which includes if you are living in a shelter, vehicle or abandoned structure.
If any of the above describes your housing situation, our Homeless Student Support Resources may be helpful to you.
