Open House in the Village Annual Event
Receiving one or more scholarships to help pay tuition is another great accomplishment and shows the hard work of these students. We, “the village” use this event as an opportunity to show our support by furnishing these collegebound students with the essentials they need to kickstart their college careers. These essentials include what a scholarship does not cover, and that parents or guardians may not have the resources to offer—furnishings and essentials for dorm rooms, toiletries, equipment, and much more! This annual observance is well on its way to becoming one of RRHA’s flagship events!
We use the opportunity to honor the spirit, creativity, and perseverance of these students who have overcome great obstacles to achieve and thrive in a challenging environment. Graduating and being accepted to a college/university is a critical step in changing their environment.
The “Open House in the Village” annual scholarship event began in 2020 as an event to honor students in “our house”—the public housing communities and voucher holders managed by RRHA.
