It Takes a Village!
A program where single parents completing college can
live, learn & lean on each other
Everything single parents need to complete college, in one place.
Live close to campus in community with other students focused on completing college while parenting solo. Have access to supportive services & fun activities onsite. All at an affordable rate that's lower than most rents-thanks to our amazing support network.
We can help you with financial aid applications & enrollment beforehand to make sure you can afford to stay in school without stretching yourself too far. We want you to have MORE time with friends and family.
You don't have to do it alone
We're Better Together!
