This program has helped many who would have otherwise been lost. Not only have they assisted with support for education but also housing assitance, and childcare.
Not to be forgotten they have provided much needed emotional support that sadly many of the participants have never had. That support has proven to be the tool needed to assist in breaking the cycle of poverty.

I have witnessed the enthusiasm, appreciation, and gratitude exhibited by the clients of Family Scholar House. These clients are single parents seeking educational advancement to break the cycle of poverty in which they have been caught. I've witnessed the pride of the clients as they talk about their educational accomplishments. Watching the staff of the organization work with these parents and their children certainly makes clear the power of mission of Family Scholar House.

attendance at annual luncheon and listened to the young adults testify how Family Scholar House has enabled them to achieve success in education and enter a career that will enable them to provide a better life for their families and to pursue a dream of a profession.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them a magic wand to allow them to offer their services to more individuals and promote higher educational opportunities for more families.
