Overview of Basic Needs Security

The Center for Basic Needs Security provides resources for students, faculty, and community members. At Massasoit Community College we learn as whole people. To learn effectively you must have basic security: a roof over your head, a safe place to sleep, enough food to eat. If you’re having trouble with any of those things, please connect with us, and together we can make sure those needs, and many others, are met.
