My FSH Band

Published on January 29, 2021, by Kate Brackett to the FSH Stories Category.

To me, the Family Scholar House has been a reset button. It is a place where I came and reset my thoughts, feelings, and goals. It has been a place of healing and growth for not only me, but also my child, and the other families that share this space with us. To me, Family Scholar House is a place of unity where everyone can come together as mothers, children, students, and working single parents.

From that desire, was created by Family Scholar House in collaboration with Metro United Way’s 2-1-1 program. It is our community’s safety net web-based app.

One of the most enlightening memories from my childhood was of a spontaneous week night picnic with a neighbor family. I was 7 or 8 years old and although I saw it all as it occurred, it wasn’t until a few years later that I really understood what had happened.

A Time for Thanks

Published on November 17, 2020, by Kate Brackett to the FSH Stories Category.

November is a time for giving thanks. We want to take the time to say “thank you” to our incredibly supportive community here in Louisville. On November 3, we were so fortunate to have a volunteer group from Brown-Forman spend the day with us at our Stoddard Johnston Scholar House campus.
