Columbus Scholar House for Former Foster Youth serves young people ages 18-24 with a foster care history who are currently attending accredited two or four-year College or University.
Housing for former foster youth is a vitally important need, nationwide, and throughout the state of Ohio. Here is a link to a video that explains more about the vital importance, and here is a link to additional photos of Scholar House 3.
History of This Project
Ohio foster care youth and alumni have been working with the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority and Columbus State Community College since 2017 to propose and design Scholar House 3 for former foster youth pursuing higher education.
Our project was chosen as a secondary priority for the 2018 Qualified Allocation Plan’s set aside for Transitioning Aged Youth, and was ultimately funded by CMHA as a strategic opportunity.
