SPSF Pulaski provides scholarships, nurtures families and creates new futures.

MISSION

SPSF Pulaski provides scholarships and services to high-potential, low-income single parents in Pulaski County. SPSF Pulaski students are highly motivated individuals who desire a better life for themselves and their families.

SPSF Pulaski offers a support community and access to a wide network of resources. Through an empowering workshop series, community-based activities, and mentor support, scholars address relevant issues: Financial Literacy, Communication and Leadership, Personal Management, and Professional Skills. Consistently, over 90 percent of SPSF students graduate or continue their education. Families move from being economically at risk to a place of employment in a career that provides competitive wages and meets the needs of their families.
