Her Pathway... to Self-Sufficiency 

The Cincinnati Scholar House is an affordable housing community designed to provide a stable living and learning environment for low-income single parents and their dependent children while the parent attends post-secondary classes. While the parents are in school, their children will be enriched by an on-site infant to pre-K child development center. By providing this support, the Cincinnati Scholar House can assist single parents in achieving full-time employment and economic stability. Their mission is to break the cycle of poverty and achieve transformative change through education – two generations at a time.
