Testimonies:

"My favorite thing about HEFAS is just knowing it exists, and that if I refer a student to HEFAS there will be a safe and supportive environment welcoming them! Also, the student interns are super friendly and personable; plus always down to support wider campus events."

- Melecia Navarro, De Anza alum and EOPS Program Coordinator
