Scholar House III in Columbus OH will serve young people ages 18-24 with a foster care history. Consistent with the Scholar House model, residents of the project are expected to maintain full-time status at an accredited two or four-year College or University.
Target move in date for 30 Scholar House III residents is August 2020.
History of This Project
Ohio foster care youth and alumni have been working with the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority and Columbus State Community College to propose and design a Scholar House III for former foster youth pursuing higher education.
We are honored and privileged to be able to work directly with the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority to decide what services would be needed, and to vote on specific elements related to building design.
Our project was chosen as a secondary priority for the 2018 Qualified Allocation Plan’s set aside for Transitioning Aged Youth – and is being funded by CMHA as a strategic opportunity.
To learn more, please view this recent design presentation by Moody Nolan – with only one caveat: There will be 30 total apartments, not just 20.
