Basic Needs Security

At Massasoit Community College we learn as whole people, and to learn effectively you must have your basic needs. Any student who has difficulty accessing sufficient food to eat every day, or who lacks a safe and stable place to live, and believes this may affect their performance is encouraged to contact Basic Needs Security for support. Please connect with us, and together we can make sure those needs, and many others, are met.
