IvyCares staff are also prepared to help you connect with food access resources in your local community. To learn more about what your campus offers, connect with your IvyCares staff member. 

  • Access to technology and the internet are keys to student success while in college. Campuses offer a few different ways to assist you in this area. Contact your campus IvyCares staff member to learn more about the resources available to you.

  • Students seeking transportation assistance can connect with their IvyCares staff member to learn more about their campus’ transportation resources, which may include connecting with local public transportation or receiving vouchers for ride sharing options.

  • Ivy Tech and Indiana’s Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning have joined forces to provide eligible Ivy Tech students with streamlined access to child care assistance. Through this partnership, Ivy Tech students who are seeking child care assistance and meet Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) eligibility guidelines will qualify for streamlined access to child care assistance vouchers.  For more information about this program and how to apply for a voucher, please visit: www.ivytech.edu/childcare.

  • Nationwide, mental health is one of the biggest issues facing college students. Whether you talk to a trusted friend, family member, or someone at Ivy Tech, we want you to ask for help when you need it. Each of the Ivy Tech campuses has connections to mental health resources. Additionally, many of our faculty and staff have received special training to know how to assist students by referring them to mental health services. Connect with your IvyCares staff member or mental health staff member to learn more about your options.
