Family Scholar House:
How to Help

One of the roles of the ECTC Foundation is to foster student success by building relationships with organizations that can help improve the lives of students. One such partnership is with Family Scholar House, which works to ease financial and situational burdens that could prevent a student from continuing their education at ECTC.

Each year, Family Scholar House serves disadvantaged individuals and families with a comprehensive, holistic continuum of care and empower them towards their educational, career and family goals.
