Single Stop USA

Launched 2011


Helping to remove barriers to college success and beyond

While the concept is simple, the impact is profound. Single Stop fosters economic mobility for families and individuals navigating low-incomes by facilitating access to safety net resources needed for higher education, good jobs, and financial self-sufficiency.

At Bunker Hill Community College, Single Stop offers students a wide array of services, including benefits screening, free tax preparation, financial counseling, mobile food pantries, health insurance assistance, and a matched savings plan. It is a consistently reliable one-stop source for invaluable information and resources related to basic needs so students can focus more on academics.

Single Stop has a proven track record of supporting students from low-wealth backgrounds, multicultural students, and adult learners to succeed in college. Through an independent evaluation, Single Stop clients were found to be more successful in college than their peers; they were more likely to persist into the next year, attempt more credits, and complete their degree programs.
