Panther Care Program

Translate Page

●   In August 2019, Chaffey College introduced a student emergency intervention and wellness program, now known as Panther Care, to help meet the basic needs and wellbeing of at-risk students. Panther Care serves some of Chaffey’s most vulnerable students, which include those facing crises such as housing displacement and/or food insecurity, by providing food, referrals for housing, emergency funds and/or counseling - all of which correlate to student success, health and wellness. This is a college-wide intervention hosted by the Department of Strategic communications.


For further questions about the student emergency intervention program and/or to refer a student in need, please contact Prentice Harris at or Albert Rodriguez at

Program Goals:

  • To support and empower students by assisting them in meeting basic needs as they work to complete their educational goals
  •  To provide students with immediate support during an unexpected emergency through meals, referrals for short-term housing, and emergency grant funds so they can continue with their academics and persist at Chaffey College
  • To connect students with ongoing counseling and assistance through college resources and community partnerships
