How It All Comes Together
Advocacy. Coaching. Housing.
Being a single parent while pursuing your education can be challenging. But you don't have to do it alone. Our community of students and staff are here to support you every step of the way. Together, we can help you achieve your goals and create a brighter future for you and your family.
Scholar House works alongside single parents each week to provide family services, academic coaching, life skills training, financial coaching, and housing in order to support a single parent during their journey to graduate from an accredited college or certified apprenticeship program.
SCHOLAR HOUSE IS
About Heartland Scholar House
Heartland Scholar House opened in January 2022, as the primary Indiana affiliate of Family Scholar House in Louisville, Kentucky. Family Scholar House was born from Project Women, an organization originally established in 1995 by representatives of six orders of nuns. What began with only four families is now a recognized national best practice program headquartered in Louisville, KY, serving more than 30,000 people annually and focused on education as a primary path for ending the cycle of inherited poverty.
Scholar House Works
Our outcomes speak for themselves. Participants have a 91% completion rate. Three months after leaving the program, 70% of participants no longer require public assistance. This is especially impactful considering our families experienced poverty, homelessness, and domestic violence.
