Awesome; a chance for young single mothers to move from welfare by getting a college education. The more people we can get out of the welfare system the better this area will be. A working class supports a community.

To think that UPike has been talked about so bad on here. Then something like this comes out that they are trying to do. Kinda makes a feller go hmmmm to figure out how people is going to talk down on this idea like making UPike a public university.

They have been working on this project for a long time. It certainly doesn't demonstrate any kind of elitist, but rather a sincere concern for the people of this area and the area's future.
sorry

This project sucks. I have 2 kids, living on their own, making ends meet by the skin of their teeth. No insurance, junk for cars, can't pay rent nor insurance. But they are out there fighting instead of crying to the government. They won't qualify for nothing, no insurance, no real baby sitters, no college education. That sucks that there is a way for those to get all this free, when my kids don't qualify. The mark of broken system when those trying end up in worse conditions than those sittin on their arses.

I am a single mother of a two yearold i am disabled but i am currently pursuing my college education and my major is Criminal Justicr and their children will also get the benefits and because we work hard in College will be the reason n e one qualifies... i have struggled and still currently struggling with getting byhowever when my daughter finally has her own room, a chance for a better learning environment, along with her mother and she knows were safe in our own place to call home for a while we will be able to sleep peacefully at night and i won't have to worry so much because there has been days i go hungry jus so she can get her daily required food groups that she needs. but with the scholar house and their help with a home while i am trying to get my degrees i won't have to worry about these hardships much longer and thwen once i get ahead and am working with troubled juveniles then i can give some back. Maybe ur kids should try harder n maybe u should quit being so judgmental

Everyone should give this a chance it's not only upike you can attend big sandy , upike, or national college and still take advantage of the scholar house I know this for a fact because I heard it from an actual board member if you are interested all you have to do is go to pikeville housing authority at Myers towers and tell them you want to apply for the scholar house we are doing great things in eastern Kentucky how about instead of knocking it down try to volunteer and become a part of it

you don't know what you talking about first of all to qualify to live there you must be a college student and be required to maintain a certain grade so they will not be sitting on their arses as you say.. I think it is a wonderful thing but there always as to be an hater when something good comes here

There once was a great kid, hard working, perfect behavior, top of the class, a child any parent would be proud of. Both parents worked hard their whole lives. The good child is rewarded by student loans, while the ones who spread their legs, are teen moms, get free tuition, free housing, free cell phones, free daycare and no doubt some sort of check. What the hell?????? The world is upside down........
