As we enter 2021, we are urged to have strength and courage in the face of uncertainty. For most of us that can feel understandably overwhelming and scary. For Kacie, one of our 2020 graduates, she faces this year with hope, gratitude and pride, despite a background of hardships, challenges and loss.
We have all had those moments where we need help and are unsure where to turn. Often our pride, or fear for our safety, keeps us from asking for the assistance we need. When individuals are in need, we want to make sure a helping hand is free, easily accessible, up-to-date and safe. From that desire, Louieconnect.com 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.
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.
At Family Scholar House, our volunteers make our mission statement a reality for so many families, and we absolutely could not accomplish that without them. Lisa Dahlem and her daughter, Kate, are two of our outstanding volunteers that have served our FSH community for years. We recently interviewed Lisa to learn more about why she chose to serve our organization so many years ago, and what it is that keeps her coming back to this day.
