Like many people during the pandemic, Fulisha Lilian Oscar, 36, has a lot going on in her life. As a single mother of six, she balances caring for a family with her studies at Madera Community College. She also works remotely for the college’s financial aid office. At times, she worries about keeping food on the table for her children.
She's not alone. Financial aid administrators say the most immediate need before Congress is more CARES Act money to help struggling students like Oscar.
