Scott High School Community HUB
Lutheran Social Services partners with Scott High School to provide mental health and behavioral services to the SHS community. We work to improve student behavior, foster healthy relationships with others, provide options for growth and promote improvement across students’ and community members’ lives.
Services Offered at Scott High School:
- Mental Health Counseling
- Anger Management
- Developing Social Skills
- Building Confidence
- Reducing Behavioral Difficulties
- The Opportunity for Support Groups
- Parenting Skills
- Counseling for Victims of Domestic Violence
These services are also available to all people (individuals, parents, families, groups) in the Scott community! Healthy minds bring healthy relationships, improved performance in school or work, and higher quality of life. These all make our community better than it already is!

A HUB of Activity and the Heart of an Old West-End Community
Established in 1913, Scott High School has drawn its Toledo neighborhood together for more than 100 years. Four generations of students have returned here for Class Reunions, gathering with classmates to remember their High School Years and celebrate the starting place for the journey of their grown up years. Scott Alumni include professional athletes, musicians, civic leaders and thousands of other graduates measured large for their mark on the community.
Scott High experienced a complete ($42M) renovation in 2011; and Administrators, recognizing the school as central to the fabric of its West-side community, established partnerships with a number of community supports. The initiative is titled the HUB program – picture an array of community services surrounding Scott High, which is at the center of this circle of supports. LSSNWO, with its broad array of services, is recognized as the lead partner in this circle of supports. It seems a natural choice; for LSS, founded in 1911, has literally “grown up” with Scott High School neighbors.
And to lead the HUB Program, LSS has appointed Joe Peterson as Director. Before accepting the Director’s role, Joe worked closely with students and community partners for ten years through the YMCA of Greater Toledo. A Scott High School and Ohio State University graduate, Joe is passionate about student success, strong families. As HUB Director, Joe leads a team effort, bringing resources together to strengthen the larger community. As lead partner, LSS provides mental health services, financial coaching, income tax preparation; and other resources supporting economic stability for families. Other community partners include: The University of Toledo, Bowling Green State University, Partners in Education, Pathway, United Way of Greater Toledo, Toledo Zoo, Owens-Illinois, YWCA of Greater Toledo, Grace Community Center, ProMedica Health System, Toledo Area Ministries, and a number of additional community supports. In gathering these partners together, a broad array of services are made available to the School and the community of families strengthened its program.
