In the Spring of
2020, the Maslow Center for Basic Needs was opened on the LAHC campus. The purpose of
housing such a center on campus, is to assist students who are
struggling to have their basic needs met. Through partnerships with
local Los Angeles County agencies and non-profits, the LAHC Basic Needs
Center is equipped to address a multitude of student issues.
Some of the needs the center will address are: housing insecurity, food
insecurity and clothing needs. In addition, students can access limited
case management services and information regarding on and off campus
