Trojan Shelter will be serving 6 housing insecure college students from the ages of 18-25 who are enrolled in at least 2 units for a whole school year. There, we will be giving them holistic support for them to succeed in college and ultimately find permanent housing after their term as our resident.
Trojan Shelter provides a safe and supportive space for its residents. Residents are given a bed and free meals, among other resources.
Each resident will be paired with two case managers, one from the Dworak-Peck School of Social Work and another from the Keck School of Medicine.
USC undergraduate students will serve as volunteers, cooking dinner and staying overnight with the residents.
Residents will be connected to on-campus resources and Trojan Shelter partners to pursue career opportunities.
