About

Dedicated space for Western Mass CORE students

CORE (Community, Opportunity, Resources, and Education) is a program located at Holyoke Community College which works in jails, in the community, and on-campus to create academic pathways and to support people who are currently or formerly incarcerated or impacted by the criminal legal system. 

Since 2019, we have partnered with the Hampden County Sheriff’s Department to offer college courses and extracurricular programming inside local correctional facilities. 

Our Work on the Outside and On-Campus

We believe in supporting justice-impacted individuals through creating a community of learners that respects the uniqueness of each person. One way we do that is by offering a space on campus (Frost 158) where students can connect, decompress, have a snack, work on a paper, and build community. 

Our goal is to raise $1,000 to create a dedicated Western Mass CORE center to make sure our scholars have access to a safe and comfortable space to study, books and school supplies, and basic amenities that create an inclusive and welcoming environment.
