Support Scholar House Residents
Most parents and their children will have very little when they move in at the Lincoln Grant Scholar House. Providing necessities for their new homes can be a big relief to our residents. NKCAC is collecting “new home kits”. Each kit provides much needed cleaning supplies. Kits usually cost around $50. Already assembled kits are welcomed as are donations that can be used to purchase these supplies. Purchased items can be dropped off at 717 Madison Avenue Covington, KY or by emailing LGSHVolunteer@gmail.com to coordinate pickup. If you don’t have time to shop, please send a check to made out to NKCAC to 717 Madison Avenue, Covington, KY and mark “LGSH new home kit” in the memo line.

An Incredible History
Built in the early 1930’s and dedicated on March 31, 1932, the state of the art building served as Covington’s public school for African-American students from kindergarten through twelfth grade. Lincoln Grant closed in 1965 when it, like other schools in Kentucky, was desegregated. It continued operating as an elementary school from 1966-1976 under the name of Twelfth District Elementary. Subsequently, the building served as the Northern Kentucky Community Center, providing recreation, education, cultural experiences, and fellowship for residents of the Eastside Neighborhood of Covington for more than 25 years. The 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, under the administration of the Kentucky Heritage Council / State Historic Preservation Office.
