Program Description:

Family Scholar House, Inc. in Louisville, Kentucky is a non-profit organization whose mission is to end the cycle of poverty by giving single-parent students the support they need to earn a college degree. Family Scholar House provides a comprehensive continuum of services that target any barrier their parent scholars must overcome to obtain college degrees, achieve career-track employment, and attain and maintain self-sufficiency, including supportive housing, academic advising, and family support services. Currently, Family Scholar House had four campuses in Louisville. Family Scholar House developed public-private partnerships, creative collaborations and strong community buy-in to finance the array of services they provide, including housing. For example, federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, project-based Section 8 from the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, and support from private and public donors, including a grant from Louisville Metro’s Office of Community Services and Revitalization, all contribute to the overall budget of Family Scholar House.
