Making a Difference

Sullivan-Deckard Scholar Opportunity Program

Fill This House have the unique opportunity to serve the recipients of the Sullivan-Deckard Scholar Opportunity Program since 2015. These scholars receive full four year scholarships to Cleveland State. This year was extra special because we received The Village of Elders Award.

We "filled their dorm" with all the dorm essentials.The Fill This House team that delivered all the items to the new scholars were referred to by one of the recipients  as " It was like having all your favorite Aunts show up with goodies and a hug to wish you well." Many blessings to these fortunate young people.
