They provided multiple opportunities for workshops that helped me identify my worth and the things I can accomplish. Being a single mother is not easy. At first, I thought the journey would be extremely difficult. Juggling school, caring for a newborn, and working is a lot to manage but Family Scholar House has made the transition much less stressful. Now, I believe the possibilities are endless.
Introducing KY HealthCorps
Published on August 10, 2022
My name is Megan Eldridge, I grew up in the Kentuckiana area and landed back here after 4 years in Indianapolis for college. I graduated with a degree in Communication and Organizational Leadership from Butler University in 2017. I am passionate about the meaningful work behind seeing individuals, families, and communities thrive. When I saw this opportunity with Family Scholar House to work on a new program focused on service, I knew I couldn’t pass it up. I am thrilled to be joining Family Scholar House as the KY HealthCorps Program Director.
Making a Difference in Your Community

Making an impact on your community can happen in a variety of ways. For me, becoming an AmeriCorps VISTA at Family Scholar House was the first step on my path to make a difference in my community. After two years at Family Scholar House, I am sad to leave but I now feel prepared and excited to see what’s next!

I chose to spend my summer working at Family Scholar House. There are many reasons why I chose the Family Scholar House, but the biggest reason is that this used to be my home. In 2005, my mom and I were one of the first people to move into the very first Family Scholar House campus, the Louisville Scholar House. My family was going through a hard time, and FSH welcomed us with open arms.
Music to our Ears!

Since first coming to Family Scholar House in April of 2020, I have had the honor to serve our families and watch them grow in each avenue of their life. As Family Scholar House’s Health and Wellness Coach, it is my job to make sure our families are succeeding in all parts of their wellness. From supporting families in their mental wellness through therapy resources, to helping improve nutrition and physical activity, to providing opportunities for self-care; wellness is something everyone can use in their journey to self-sufficiency. Supporting families in their wellness goals and watching them make their all over health a priority, has been a very moving part of my job.
My Mom is a Grad!

I had my daughter in June of 2018. My situation wasn’t the best, so my friend who was already taking advantage of Family Scholar’s House’s programs and services recommended them to me. I don’t have a lot of family in Louisville, and the family I do have, have so much on their plate that they cannot offer much assistance. I am a single mother and I knew when I was pregnant with my child that I would be doing this alone. Once I got into the program everything changed for me. Shortly after orientation and completing my workshops I moved into Family Scholar House. A place we could call home, and a place I was able to focus solely on my education and our future.
