Family Scholar House's mission is to end the cycle of poverty by giving single-parent students the support they need to earn a college degree. Currently, 175 families with 278 children live at Family Scholar House's residential campuses in Louisville and Southern Indiana. All of these families are low-income and have experienced homelessness or unstable housing. FSH parent scholars are full-time college students, with children of all ages, who are pursuing post-secondary education - most often while also working - to achieve career-track employment and make a better future for their children.
