LSSP Heads Back to School with Single Stop at CPCC

Natalia Single StopOf the 12 million students who enroll in community college each year, half drop out because of financial barriers. Legal Services of Southern Piedmont wants to be the change that provides more positive outcomes for community college students.

LSSP is heading back to school this fall with students at Central Piedmont Community College to be a partner in CPCC’s Single Stop program, which promotes academic achievement by helping students deal with traditional barriers to degrees — financial instability, lack of adequate housing and child care along with access to health insurance.

Natalia Botella, medical-legal partnership attorney for LSSP, is available on campus Monday afternoons throughout the school year to meet with students and offer information on resources and benefits they may be eligible to receive in order to keep students on track to achieve their academic goals.
