Single Stop USA's Community College Initiative: Intervention Report
This What Works Clearinghouse evidence snapshot and intervention report explore the effects of the Single Stop USA's Community College Initiative on college academic achievement and persistence.
From the report: "Earning a college degree is one of the primary pathways to economic success. Yet over two-thirds of students who enroll in community college do not graduate or transfer within three years. Many programs and practices aim to improve college persistence and completion, including Single Stop USA’s Community College Initiative, hereafter referred to as Single Stop. Single Stop supports community college students with screening and applications for public benefits and other wraparound services that can include housing, food assistance, tax preparation, child care, financial and legal services, and immigration consultations. This What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) report, part of the WWC’s Supporting Postsecondary Success topic area, explores the effects of Single Stop on persistence in college and academic achievement."
