Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Kentucky Medicaid recently visited the Lincoln Grant Scholar house to provide families access to essential hygiene items, such as deodorant, razors, soap, and shampoo, to help improve their overall health and well-being.
Home to 45 families, Lincoln Grant Scholar House is an innovative model for single parents who are full time college students in the northern Kentucky area. The goal is for residents to achieve post-secondary success, so they will experience higher earnings and a clearer career path which will lead to self-sufficiency.
Residents receive counseling and support while fulfilling academic or vocational training coursework as full-time students. They are also encouraged to access the resources that are available at the college or university they are attending, such as advising, on-campus interviews, writing center help, remedial courses, and student life events and activities. By providing affordable, safe, and decent housing, on-site case management, an Academic Service Center, children’s library, and computer lab, the Scholar House experience enables residents – many of them first generation college students – to find success in their quest for self-reliance.
