My name is Michelle Jordan,I am trying to find how I can become involved in the one family scholar program. How I found out about the program is, that I was homeless living in the Boston area and I was trying to continue my education. Since then I have moved back to Ohio where I now reside with my daughter. I am currently enrolled at Sinclair Community College where I plan to major in Social Work. I would love to become a part of this program please tell me how. Thanks you so much. e-mail/ michelle6929@sbcglobal.net
