Beatitude House strengthens focus


While education has always been a key part of Beatitude House’s mission, adding the Ursuline Sister Scholars program has made Beatitude House’s education impact stronger. This impact will only continue to grow as long-time supporters William J. Bruder Trust and I. J. Van Huffel Foundation have dedicated new funds to the program. The support of these foundations further solidifies its resolve to continue expanding this program into Trumbull County.

The Ursuline Sisters Scholars works to break the cycle of poverty through education. This program has a two-pronged approach by providing financial support and one-on-one mentorship from a volunteer.
