College Peer Navigator at Mt. SAC
The College Peer Navigator's (CPN) role is to support college students of any age, attending Mt. San Antonio College, who are currently experiencing homelessness, or those who are at risk of experiencing homelessness.
The CPN will work with students to:
- Assess their situation
- Provide partnership towards problem solving possible resolutions of their situation
- offer any resources or connections that could help
The CPN can also help connect eligible students to the greater LAHSA Coordinated Entry System (see below for more information).
If you are a student experiencing homelessness or unstable housing, set up an appointment with our Mountie Fresh Coordinator who will refer you to our campus CPN!
