Pregnant and parent scholars represent one-third of all Sacramento State students. Not only are they raising the next generation, they are working to create a more hopeful future for them. These inspiring student-parents are often faced with difficult choices when balancing personal, family, work, and student life. All too often, dropping out of college prevails when forced to make a choice.
There is too much at stake for these incredibly ambitious and driven students.
The Parents & Families Program at Sacramento State aims to mitigate the risk of disenrolling by supporting these scholars and their unique needs so they can persist to graduation. We ensure that Sacramento State will always be a place where the future begins by providing the following services free of charge:
- A safe space to turn to for information and help
- A community of support, connecting pregnant and parenting students to each other
- Financial assistance resources such as childcare grants, WIC, scholarships, and more
- Financial wellness information to advance financial literacy
- Know-your-rights information
Please consider making a donation at any level as we work to enhance these services, increase the number of student-parents served, and provide more financial support for these deserving students.
Thank you and Stingers Up!
