Review for Family Scholar House, Inc., Louisville, KY, USA
Durring the 2010/2011 academic school year, I served as a social work intern at the Family Scholar House. Before interning at the Scholar House, I didn't think that I wanted to work with their target population. After my initial interview, I immediately knew that this was an organization that was genuine in serving the community and providing their participants with the best possible services available.
Having been a single teen mother with two children at the age of 19, I was very impressed with the amount of support that the Family Scholar House provided for the single parents of the program. The support extended to the families makes it possible for the parents to focus on continuing their educational goals as well as have a stable environment to raise their children. This holistic approach supports the mental, emotional, scholastic, and spiritual needs of their participants. With the support of the community, donars, and volunteers, the families are able to overcome their challenging backgrounds and move towards eliminating their generational cycle of poverty. I am so glad that I was able to be a part of such a loving, caring and supportive organization. It was a blessing to assist the staff in providing the clients with tools that will assist in their overall success in life.

I've witnessed the graduation of many participants of the Scholar House. Many have gone on to become social workers, and begin to give back to the community a piece of what was given to them as a result of participating in this program.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Provide them with the resources to duplicate the program nationwide.
