Beatitude House to celebrate first birthday with party

ASHTABULA — The community is invited to help Beatitude House celebrate a year of serving homeless women and children in Ashtabula.

The birthday party will be 3 to 6 p.m. July 19 at Beatitude House, 3404 Lake Ave., behind Our Lady of Peace Parish in Ashtabula. A short program will be at 3:45 p.m.

Throughout the past year, Beatitude House has served 20 women and 26 children. The community is encouraged to come celebrate and hear first-hand the positive impact Beatitude House has had on the lives of these women and children.

In addition to celebrating the achievements of their families, the community will have the opportunity to meet their new executive director, Sister Janet Gardner.

Prior to coming to Beatitude House, Gardner served as general minister for the Sisters of St. Francis of the Providence of God where she oversaw and coordinated ministries in 22 locations. She has a master’s of social work from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., and belongs to the Association of Certified Social Workers. Addition-ally, her background in transitional and supportive housing programs, as well as her experience with direct service and administration, will inform her understanding of Beatitude House and the vulnerable population they serve.

The party is sponsored by Kent State University Ashta-bula, Nassief Auto Group, Northwest Savings Bank, Marianne Sezon/Eddie’s Grill, Ashtabula County Medical Center, Ron and Karen Borkes, Andover Bank, Knights of Columbus Council 360, Guerriero Funeral Home and Giant Eagle Ashtabula.
