SOWELA Technical Community College has partnered with Single Stop USA, a non-profit organization, to create a “One Stop Shop” for students to get connected to resources that will help keep them in school. The idea is to have a place where students can go to get screened for multiple government benefits and local community resources, receive assistance in accessing those benefits, and follow-up to see if they have in fact received the benefits for which they are eligible.
Single Stop staff uses a specially designed technology known as BEN (Benefits Enrollment Network) to do rapid screenings for benefits, then assist students in applying for those benefits. All of our services are FREE for SOWELA students and their families. Single Stop staff determines which public benefits the student or family member is eligible and helps them to apply for those benefits like SNAP (Food Stamps), Child Care Assistance, Medicaid, etc.

For additional information regarding the services available through the Single Stop office, please contact
