Parenting While In College: Basic Needs Insecurity Among Students With Children

Posted by The Hope Center on July 21, 2020

Our #RealCollege report documents the particular challenges parenting students face when it comes to providing for the basic needs of themselves and their children.

The report highlights that 53% of parenting students were food insecure, 58% housing insecure, and 17% homeless. The report also found that the majority of parenting students cannot afford childcare. With at least 1 in 5 of today’s college students parenting while in college, it is time for action to support these students.
