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 !

The Great!

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!

I have been a participant at FSH for 4.5 years. I came to them in 2006 not truly understanding exactly how their program could benefit my daughter and I. They provided us with stable housing, scholarship opportunities, a donated car and most importantly a support system. Since becoming a part of FSH I have grown tremendously as a student, parent and overall as a person. I received an Associate degree in 2009 and transferred on to work toward my Bachelors degree in Sociology. I am now one semester away from graduating and currently working as an intern with FSH, all made possible by their great organization. My daughter and I could not have hoped for more. She has made many friends and become a part of a great community over the past 4.5 years. We can honestly say that we have gained a family at Family Scholar House. As an intern I am now getting the chance to help others and become a living testimony to how this program has changed not only my life, but the life of my daughter.

Before Family Scholar House grew to become all that it is now, it was known as Project Women- a much smaller organization but still with the same mission. The time I spent as a resident before the program expanded was more of a close knit community and it seemed we had better relationships with our neighbors and the staff. Since the expansion the program has a changed a bit and many of the participants who experienced the change have reported not feeling the same toward FSH.

Family Scholar House assisted in paving the path of my educational journey. They offered support and services to my family while I obtained my undergraduate degree as well as, continued support through my Masters program. I am the 1st in my family to obtain a college degree and feel confident my children will follow in my footsteps. Because of the consistency and stability FSH presented, my family is now self-supporting, independent, and confident. FSH is committed and dedicated to supporting their families for the long term. I am looking forward to purchasing my 1st home within the next year with the support of FSH’s home-ownership program!

I am currently an investigator on a domestic violence team. I earned a masters degree in Social Work and I am a Certified Social Worker. I recently co-authored the book titled Reinventing Yourself at Any Age: The Power of Change, my chapter offers encouragement and tips pertaining to education and school success. During my undergraduate studies I studied abroad in Uganda, Africa. These achievements were made possible by the support and resources I received while a resident of Family Scholar House.

FSH continues to grow and evolve as the population changes. They are committed to best practice and serving their clients. Active involvement of graduates is encouraged to offer additional support and mentoring to current residents.

I have been been a participant at Family Scholar House since June 2008.
I am a student in the University of Louisville's College of Education and I have a cumulative grade point average of 3.552. Throughout the past academic year, I have been an active participant and advocate for the Family
Scholar House Program; including accompanying the President/CEO to a national conference, where I presented my story.
The support that I have received through services offered through the Family Scholar House program have completely transformed my life. I now will have the ability to provide better opportunities for my children and myself. I am on track to complete my B.S. in Special Education with a concentration in learning and behavioral disabilities in May 2012.

I am on track to complete my B.S. in special education in May of 2012 with the support of the Family Scholar House. Through the Family Scholar House, I have received academic services and support, tutoring for my oldest son, who is special needs, received tuition assistance for the Early Learning Campus where my children attend school, housing assistance, and moral support. As well, I have been given generous donations for holidays. The Family Scholar House has become a family to my children and me.

This organization is absolutely fantastic. I honestly can't think of any changes that are needed with this organization. I hope that I can continue to advocate for the Family Scholar House and educate the public on the importance of this organization and the positive changes it has/is creating for future generations.
