Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) was established to help community college students from economically and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds succeed in their educational goals and transferring to a four-year institution.

At Citrus College, the EOPS Office has one purpose in mind: to help you succeed in your educational goals. We provide educationally under-prepared and economically disadvantaged students with the tools needed to get the most out of what college has to offer.

The EOPS program enhances your educational success through academic counseling, textbook assistance, and a variety of valuable support services.

Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) program was established to help single parent EOPS students who are current TANF/CalWORKs participants.

The CARE program is designed to help break the welfare cycle by offering additional support to students who want to receive college-level career training or complete specific educational programs.

As a team, the EOPS/CARE staff offers you guidance in a supportive atmosphere that promotes independence, self-esteem, and overall personal success.​
