Student Resource and Support Network


Welcome to SRSN!

We are very excited to welcome our new Student Resource & Support Network Director Eli Chance!

Eli is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 12 years experience working in Santa Cruz County with the Health Services Agency (HSA) in the Behavioral Health division. In his many roles over the years with HSA, Eli worked directly to house and support our most vulnerable community members with serious mental illness and often co-occurring substance use disorders. Eli is a trainer in both Trauma Informed Systems (TIS) and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). He is a graduate of Cabrillo College and is thrilled to return in this role to support students in their educational journey.

Our programs and the SRSN staff are here to help you attend Cabrillo!
