100 Days Challenge brings additional support for homelessness

Matriculating SJSU students age 17-25 experiencing homlessness or housing insecurity may be eligible for additional housing support now. While SJSU Cares has worked with the Bill Wilson Center (BWC) in the past a new our new joint 100 Days Challenge in collaboration with Santa Clara County organizations positions the BWC to make a greater impact to reduce homelessness. During the time of the Challenge the county helped house or keep housed 134 college-engaged youth.  If you need assistance, the help is still out there.
