Basic Needs

CSUN with A HEART is a collection of various resources regarding the basic needs of students in the campus community. The California State University Basic Needs Initiative and CSUN provide resources for food, housing, financial support, mental & physical well-being, and communities of support.

The HEAL Project assists diverse and underrepresented student communities by providing safe spaces to explore individual potential barriers while integrating healing-centered engagement to foster positive well-being and promote self-efficacy.

They do not provide therapy, rather they connect CSUN at-promise students with resources they need to thrive in college and promote student success.
