Newport on the Levee Gives Scholar House a $10,000 Boost

A nice check was presented to the Northern Kentucky Scholar House.

Newport on the Levee announced a donation of $10,000 to the comprehensive self-sufficiency program for single parent families that provides affordable housing, child development services, and case management support as they pursue a degree in higher education.

The Scholar House in Newport broke ground last August and is located at 450 West Sixth Street adjacent to the Marguerite Robinson Community Center. The development team is led by Neighborhood Foundations and includes Brighton Properties, Inc., and the Model Group. Neighborhood Foundations will own and manage the site while the Brighton Center will provide the educational program and other supportive programs.

The facility is scheduled to open in the summer.

Levee General Manager Harold Dull presented the generous donation to Tammy Weidinger, president/CEO of Brighton Center, Inc. and Tom Guidugli, executive director of the Neighborhood Foundations. 

“The Northern Kentucky Scholar House will create a path to self-sufficiency by supporting education and offering housing and childcare on-site to assist 
Scholar House residents in breaking down life barriers and becoming self-sufficient,” Guidugli said.

“This program is made possible by the strong partnerships and community support offered by this region,” Weidinger said.
