Scholar House

Scholar House is a housing and education initiative that enables the head-of-household to reach self-sufficiency (free of public assistance, including housing). The housing and education components are operated as one unit, with housing depending on the client's successful participation in the education. Participants must be at least 18 years of age, be eligible for Housing Choice Voucher, and be full-time students in a degree or specialty institution of higher learning. Single parents are given first priority. Program participants receive counseling, workshops, and support from neighbors and staff, while fulfilling academic or vocational training coursework as full-time students. Scholar House 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 child care 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.

Bowling Green Scholar House offers: A newly constructed two bedroom apartment that is approximately 900 square feet and contains a range, refrigerator, dishwasher, washer and dryer. Rental Assistance which could pay all or part of your rent and utilities. An on-site childcare facility operated by Community Action of Southern Kentucky, specialists in quality child care.
