Meeting the Needs of All Students

Mission Statement

The Lenore Croudy Family Life Center is designed to meet the needs of all students, and is available to provide basic needs support through Mott Eats and Ellen’s Closet. The center provides consultation, help to students in finding and engaging with resources to meet their needs, as well as assistance to other MCC staff in finding resources to support students. In addition the LCFLC is a safe space for students, staff and the community to volunteer and be of service to the Mott community.

Lenore Croudy Family Life Center

Beacon and Safe Haven

Vision & Purpose

The Family Life Center will serve as a welcome beacon and safe haven for Mott’s students and their families, providing access to a food pantry, a clothing closet and referrals to the many student and family support services available at MCC and in the broader community. Students with challenges related to food, housing, childcare, transportation, healthcare and other personal barriers to academic success will be served daily in the center.

The Lenore Croudy Family Life Center will serve as a tribute to Mrs. Croudy’s 29 years of service and leadership as a trustee. She was well known for her commitment to the College, its students and their families. She firmly believed that education is a powerful force for good.

"Establishing a Family Life Center in Mrs. Croudy’s name honors her legacy to the fullest, by helping to reduce barriers and challenges that impede our student’s success."

MCC President, Dr Beverly Walker-Griffea

It also will serve as a resource hub, helping MCC students and their families address such basic needs as food, housing and transportation. Non-student parents of children in the ECLC program will also have the ability to access family support services on site.
