He says he has no choice but to live in his car for three months. Mworia is a senior at CSU East Bay.

Due to the pandemic, some students had to face great difficulties. Schools are more than just places of education – for many, they are a source of safety, food and fast internet access. Worse, many students working on campus now find it difficult to meet their basic needs. California’s worsening student homelessness problem began long before the pandemic. According to UCLA’s comprehensive report, “Ending Student Homelessness in California,” published this fall, 11 percent of all CSU students experienced homelessness during the 2018-2019 academic year.

The unemployment rate rose during the pandemic. Because of the shelter, Chancellor Timothy White has secured income protection for student workers at CSU, but only until April 5, 2020. Mworia said the school has been paying students $300 a month for about three months. However, as an international student, Mworia’s job opportunities are more limited because she is not eligible to work on campus due to her visa status. “I pay so much for school fees, nobody wanted to fight for me – I’m not human,” Mworia said. “It was very frustrating. Yeah, I think they [CSU-East Bay] could have done better.”
“I pay a lot of money for school fees and nobody wanted to fight for me – it’s not human… It was very embarrassing. Yeah, I feel like [CSU-East Bay] can do better. ‘
Realizing her financial struggles and hardships, Mworia visited the International Programs office to see if there were any resources that could help her. “They just told me they couldn’t do anything,” Mworia said in an email, though she explained she was homeless. Here is CSU East Bay’s Pioneers for H.O.P.E (Helping Our Pioneers Excel) program. Founded in 2016, the program helps students find affordable housing, food, and plans food drives to visit people once a week, excluding holidays. This program typically helps a small number of students each month. But this has increased during the pandemic. During the 2019-2020 academic year, Cal State East Bay’s total population was 14,705, and the program served approximately 10,000 students, according to program coordinator Daris Ingram.

For two years, the coronavirus pandemic has seen the number of people applying for food and emergency assistance, and explained that the program focuses on providing students with everything from temporary housing, paying bills, and placing food items once a week. Ingram said students are responsible for choosing what goes into the grocery bags, which can help eliminate food waste. Staff then collect the food bags and distribute them according to social distancing guidelines. “There are fresh fruits and vegetables. We try to make it fun, make less recipes and talk about how easy it is for our students,” Ingram said. Pioneers for H.O.P.E. helps all students, unlike CalFresh, the federal food assistance program administered by the California Department of Human Services, which is only responsible for certain individuals. CSU East Bay’s current student body president, Eurydice Pamela Sanchez, said the pandemic has caused her to cook at home to avoid exposing herself to the virus. “I’m excited because there’s so much free food,” Sanchez said. Sanchez must prioritize her available resources because she is a recipient of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, known as a Dreamer, which gives legal status to young immigrants brought to the United States by their parents. DACA recipients are not eligible for CalFresh programs. “I know the pioneers for H.O.P.E., they don’t require citizenship, so I’m trying to promote it for the Dreamers,” Sanchez said.
