For nearly 30 years, Beatitude House has been successful in its mission to create homes, provide educational opportunities and foster healthy families. Over 7,000 women and children have been served across our three programs. Our housing program assists homeless families with obtaining a home, subsidizing housing costs and providing voluntary support services to help them stabilize their lives. The Ursuline Sisters Scholars program helps low-income students break the cycle of poverty and get a new start by obtaining a post-secondary education. Our Immigrant Outreach program offers English as a Second Language classes (ESL), tutoring for school-aged children and outreach services.

FUNDRAISING GOAL: $2,000

  Programs Supported by Your Donations  

The Ursuline Sisters Scholar program helps college students from low-income families achieve their academic goals through mentorship and financial assistance. The program’s objective is to break the cycle of generational poverty through post-secondary education. The program provides resources that address the individual hurdles faced by each student.

We pair students with a volunteer mentor who serves as a support system and offers guidance for students eager to reach their goals. Financial assistance is available to address basic needs for food, clothing, and transportation. The scholar’s program helps alleviate the barriers that can keep a student from graduating and empowers them to overcome obstacles in their lives. Scholarships and grants are available for academic-related needs. Workshops on topics such as financial management, time management, and study skills are offered to the students in the program.

There are currently seven students enrolled in the program in Trumbull County. Beatitude House is requesting funds to help support those seven students in the Ursuline Sisters Scholars program. These funds will be used for all Trumbull County students should additional students enroll.

  Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help  

When the pandemic hit, many of our funds had to be diverted to meet our client's additional emergent needs for items such as food and utility assistance. As all of our clients have very low or no-income we provide most of their basic necessities.

We had to cancel our largest fundraiser scheduled for May 1st.

General donations have slowed and our resources at this time are being stretched thin.

In addition, many foundations delayed or canceled their general programing grant funds to provide covid-19 related emergency funds.
