The Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund was formed in 1990 by Marjorie Marugg-Wolfe and Ralph Nesson based on a grassroots effort started in 1984 in Northwest Arkansas to provide financial assistance and personal support to low-income single parents. The Nessons recognized a growing need in their community – that of single parents with no means of generating a family-supporting income, many with no employment skills or family support. They set out to build an organization that would remove barriers to success for single parents, envisioning a holistic approach that included mentoring, developmental workshops and career coaching. These early efforts were immediately successful at helping single parents return to school, which in turn opened doors to better employment at living wages. Motivated by the unprecedented results, a group of influential supporters and donors backed the program’s growth.
