Most university ask for a 3+ GPA. Yet, you attend a community college for a year or two and raise your grades. also just apply for scholarships. There's a scholarship for almost anything.
I should add I am not a senior, so I have one year of high school to do. (My GPA should be 3.4ish if everything goes according to plan.) "also just apply for scholarships. There's a scholarship for almost anything." Erm, where would I find such scholarships?

Scholarship for anything, like a scholarship for being a left hander, or a different race, if you know a different language etc etc. If you are a junior in HS, then next year try getting straight A's and B's.
COMMUNITY SERVICE but not just doing it, make sure to right it down and account for it when applying to colleges. Community service is huge and will open doors to many scholarship opportunities as well. Also, consider why a school should accept you into their program. Consider what you can do for them and if you can't think of anything you should probably engage in some extra curricular activities, again community service, and find something you are exceptional at to set you apart from other applicant. Also, don't be afraid to seek advice from your school counselor they are there as a recourse for you and remember they get paid to help you!
Community colleges are useful in several situations. These include: 1) They are less costly. 2) They have many certificate programs. 3) They offer a lot of trade related degrees that get people to work quicker. 4) They can ERASE a bad high school record by replacing it with a transfer record. 5) They can let people get started in college more easily than most Universities because they generally offer more support, smaller classes, easier access to instructors, and are more flexible about prerequisites. So being "glued" to a community college is not a bad thing. It is a starting point or a do over that can open up doors for people.
I know community colleges are not bad, but going to one is improbable for financial reasons. (In short, family will help out if I go to a regular university, but if I go to community college I am on my own.) Are soup kitchens considered community service?
I would consider soup kitchens community service. Do you have a college in mind already? maybe look into what that college might find particularly satisfactory in terms of service that you're doing.
All right, thank you. As for having any college in mind, I do not really care for university or college, I just want to further my education. Preferable in the area of computer engineering or computer science.
