Cecil Dunn - Executive Director of One Parent Scholar House

At the beginning of 2010, the Hope Center took over management of One Parent Scholar House. I couldn’t be happier about this opportunity to do something about homelessness before it has the opportunity to damage another life – or lives.

You see, studies show that families headed by single parents without education are families who face an increased risk of becoming homeless. The children in these families rely on their sole parents, overwhelmingly young women, to provide them with the resources they need for stability, nurture and growth. Without education, these parents are hard-pressed to provide those resources. At One Parent Scholar House, single-parent families receive:

  • Affordable Housing for the Families
  • Higher Education Opportunities for the parents
  • Child Development and Care for the children

I encourage you to read the personal stories on this website. These women and their children will not be tomorrow’s homeless family. They will be tomorrow’s positive contributors. One Parent Scholar House made that possible.

I ask you to take part in this effort. Your donation will help create more stories like this. Think about it. There are many worthy and effective ways to fight homelessness, but this has to be one of the most gratifying.

Thank you for your interest in One Parent Scholar House. We hope this Website will answer any questions you have. If you’re interested in living at One Parent Scholar House, please go to the “I Need Help” button. You will find everything you need to get started towards a better future for you and your children.

"They require so little of us for what we get back. The monthly meetings are great fellowship. Your kid goes to day care 100 feet from where you live. It doesn’t get any better than this. The community is great. We all share the same experience – the same problems and stresses, and the same joys in our children and our accomplishments. In any other community, I would be the one single parent, but here we’re all the same."
