It’s hard to focus on college classes when you don’t have access to food or a place to sleep at night, says Nadine Greene-Hicks, whose job as the community connections coordinator at Central Virginia Community College is to try to dismantle those barriers. Virginia’s community colleges are stepping up the help they provide students and simplifying the process for getting aid. It’s a response they hope will combat some of the financial and emotional pressures of the pandemic and keep people in school.
