Holistic Student Services

Manchester Community College is dedicated to supporting students in their educational goals and increasing the likelihood of graduation by addressing non-academic needs both on and off-campus. The issues addressed include, but are not limited to, food insecurity, homelessness and housing issues, and transportation barriers.

MCC operates the Cougar Pantry  and Career Clothing Closet in SSC L149.


MCC also coordinates with local social service agencies to bring their offerings to campus. Currently,  Community Renewal Team (CRT) is on campus every other Monday,  from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. 

MCC recently signed a Memo of Acknowledgement with Aware Recovery Care to provide on-campus case management. An Aware Recovery Care  advisor is on campus every Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 12 Noon.

Appointments are required for both CRT and ARC, and can be made by contacting Donna Nicotera at dnicotera@manchestercc.edu, in person in SSC L155, or via phone at 860-512-3283.
