Community Reviews

Rating: 5 stars  

Family Scholar House is consistently rated one of Louisville's best nonprofits. And considering the many worthwhile nonprofits Louisville boasts, this is no small compliment to the organization. The staff are competent and dedicated. But the outcomes are the most amazing part of the organization. Participants gain education in and outside formal learning environments. The organization is based on such a solid model that it is considered a thought-leader among other agencies of its kind.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing participants grow, hearing about how participants impact the community after they complete their degrees, and meeting participant-representatives at events.

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

allow for hiring more staff and expansion of the organization to different geographic locations.

Family Scholar House assists single parent college students to get their college degree. They provide housing, childcare and a list of case management and academic advising services for both the parent and child. Their goal is to assist the family in breaking out of poverty. I have donated various items to the organization. I have participated in their pack-a-backpack program that provides ALL of their students with the school supplies they need and have provided a meal for a single mother on mother's day so that she could celebrate and have the day off from cooking for her children.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Through seeing the parents earn their college degree and celebrating them at their yearly graduation party.

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