Remote Support

During this challenging time, Student Advocacy Centers across the Alamo Colleges District will continue to support our students by providing wraparound support services remotely.  We will help with issues that are outside the classroom but can negatively impact stress, focus, and student performance.  We will provide online counseling and case management support as well as emergency aid and access to community resources.  


The Nighthawk's Nest Advocacy Center will continue to monitor its department email ( and will check voicemail daily.  Please leave your name banner ID and student email.  A staff member will reach out to you within 2 business days.

Nighthawk’s Nest Advocacy Center

The mission of the Advocacy Center is to support student success and wellbeing by providing integrated services and resources that address a variety of socioeconomic needs and mental health.

In-Person and Remote Services

Case Management Services

This involves a student-centered collaborative effort with community agencies to help you address your needs and goals while building upon your strengths and facilitating access to supportive services and resources.

Counseling, Mental Health, and Recovery Support Services

We believe that academic excellence is achieved when students have a strong mind and a supportive environment. Short-term individual counseling is provided remotely to address emotional or mental health concerns.

Emergency Assistance

Emergency assistance is provided for students through emergency grants to help with unexpected emergencies, such as rent, utilities, and child care needs.

Students who receive emergency aid are strongly encouraged to participate in a financial literacy workshop

Financial Literacy Workshop

Food Pantry

The Nighthawk’s Nest Food Pantry is now open to in-person services. The Nighthawk’s Nest Food Pantry is partnered with the San Antonio Food Bank to reduce food insecurity in NLC Students. The Food Pantry provides food and toiletries for students in need and assistance with applications for federal assistance programs, including SNAP benefits. The Nighthawk’s Nest Food Pantry also provides daily Grab&Go Snacks for all students.
