Single Stop is both Support System and Safe Haven

Since opening its doors at the Community College of Philadelphia in 2013, with the support of the Greenlight Fund, Single Stop has consistently exceeded its goals: the organization has served over 4,700 students, drawing down more than $10.8m in benefits and resources. Single Stop is making a real impact on the lives of the students that it serves, helping to knock down many of the barriers preventing students from completing their degrees. However, behind each of these success metrics is a life enhanced in ways that aren’t so easily quantified.

 

“I knew [Single Stop] could help me. When I leave out of here it’s like, ‘Okay, what’s next?’ It’s a good thing. It’s a great feeling.”

Hilda, CCP Student/Single Stop Client
