Lincoln Grant Scholar House: Great Opportunity for Single Parents to Come Together in One Community
Our historic Lincoln Grant Scholar House, home to 45 single parent families in Covington is giving Northern Kentuckians a new chance for success. Once a state-of-the-art public school for African-American Students in Covington, this 1930 building is on the National Register of Historic Places, and has also been designated as an African American Heritage Site by the Kentucky African American Heritage Commission. After becoming a community center for a period, it sat vacant for many years and was revitalized as an innovative model for single parents who are full time college students. Residents have the opportunity to live in community, receive counseling, resources, and can support one another through education. “Life now is pretty good. I’m very grateful for everything. My whole experience, the good and the bad, it’s brought me here,” said resident Mia Potter. Local 12 recently did an in-depth look at some of our recent successes. Read the story, here.
