Beatitude House receives grant from Ashtabula Foundation

ASHTABULA — The Ashtabula Foundation awarded Beatitude House $15,000 for their transitional housing program. The grant will help fund A House of Blessing Ashtabula, the  transitional housing site on Lake Avenue.

Beatitude House is committed to all women and children bound in the cycle of poverty, and the organization was welcomed to the Ashtabula Community when they opened their newest program in June of 2012.

They renovated the old St. Joseph Elementary School into 10 apartments for homeless families. In addition to housing, Beatitude House provides families with support services including counseling, parenting classes, educational opportunities and child advocacy. This comprehensive program provides families with the tools to move from homelessness and poverty to stable housing and financial stability.

Over the course of the last year, Beatitude House has served 20 women and 26 children at the Ashtabula site. Some of the clients’ accomplishments include attending educational programs, securing employment, opening savings accounts, participating in enrichment activities, obtaining driver’s licenses and finding permanent housing.

The Ashtabula Foundation operates with a mission for the betterment of Ashtabula County by administering funds to reflect the intent of donors who wish to address the significant needs of Ashtabula County.
