Mission: Family Scholar House provides supportive housing and educational programs for low-income single-parent college students and their children. We change lives, families and communities through education.
Programs: Family Scholar House provides housing assistance, academic advising, case management and support services for single mothers experiencing homelessness. The focus is on obtaining baccalaureate degrees to promote career-track employment and economic self-sufficiency.
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.
