I hope that The Family scholar house one day can reach every state in the U.S. This organization is more then just people that help single parent, they are family when there is no family. There is nothing within reason that the employees are willing to help with and/or find an outside resource that can assist. I'm forever in debt to them for all they have done for me and my small family and I don't even live there yet !

I have spent thousands of hours teaching women how to love, honor, and serve from their heart, to self and others. When facilitating empowering workshops to the ladies of FSH, they not only grow from the workshop experience, they continue to grow in what my company teaches because of the staff and community of FSH. The FSH supports, encourages, and makes possible a strong life for these ladies- not a future, but in the presnt, a beautiful life.

I have had a wonderful experience with family scholar house. The program is a great opportunity for single mothers to become motivated to do the right thing. This program has and will open the doors to many great opportunities as well as become a stepping stool for most individuals.

The Family Scholar House is an amazing program. I would recommend this program to any individual who has children and trying to persue a degree. What makes this program so great is the fact that they are there for you with whatevee you need like: help with a bill, if you need food and clothes.

When I first got pregnant I was devestated. I was attending u of k and I thought about giving it all up, until I heard about the family scholar house. The family scholar house motivated me to stay in school and helped me understand that just because I have a child doesnt mean I cant be successful. I really thank god for them because without them I probably would be a college drop out! Thank you soooo much fsh. I love all of you!

Family Scholar House is a wonderful non-profit organization! They put all their time into helping others in need. They are dedicated to their participants at all times. FSH has inspired me to want to become a social worker. I look forward to becoming a pre-resident at FSH and continue working with FSH for many years to come. Family Scholar House is truly one big family that supports many participants through education and life.
