Scholar House

​​​​​​Scholar House is an innovative housing model that allows parents to obtain housing, child care, and supportive services while they earn a college degree. Together, the program helps the parent reach self-sufficiency. 

Participants must be:

  • At least 18 years of age
  • Eligible for a Housing Choice Voucher
  • Full-time students in a degree or specialty institution of higher learning
  • S​ingle parents are given first priority

Program participants receive:

  • ​Counseling
  • Workshops
  • Support from neighbors and staff

Each development includes an on-site child care facility to allow time for the parents to attend classes and focus on their education.

Scholar House also offers programs that involve enhanced health maintenance, parenting skills, management of family resources, nutritional knowledge, problem solving, work skills, and job search techniques. Most of these services are free. Housing and childcare are based on the participant's income.

Once residents have graduated from Scholar House, they are allowed ample time to find and move into permanent housing.

People interested in participating in Scholar House should contact the program near their chosen educational institution (see below).
