In order to support Central Florida students to complete college, the CFCAN, in partnership with Heart of Florida United Way and Seminole State College, has launched Destination Graduation -an innovative program which connects at-risk students to the resources they need to stay in school. 

The program aims to increase the graduation rates of low-income and veteran students attending Seminole State College by providing onsite, comprehensive supports. Destination Graduation houses a 2-1-1 Information & Referral Specialist to connect students to 2,000+ community and campus resources. The program further established an on-campus case manager to provide Emergency Financial Assistance, in the hopes of reducing the number of students who leave for nonacademic reasons.    

 
“Destination Graduation is a life-changing program that provides incredible support for students who need a hand up. Unfortunate incidents left me nearly homeless, close to academic withdrawal, and without many options although my grades were great. Destination Graduation provided me with support until I was able to receive my student financial aid, allowing me to continue my education and keep moving forward. Now I am on track to my first Dean’s List award and the future looks brighter than ever!”
— Sam, 28, Seminole State Student and Veteran
