Beards and Bowling Event Benefits Beatitude House, A House of Blessing Ashtabula

The Beards of the Old Northwest - Rock Creek Chapter, offered a bowling event March 23 at Jefferson Lanes to benefit Beatitude House, A House of Blessing Ashtabula.

More than 50 community members not only enjoyed a great day of bowling and fellowship, but they also helped support Beatitude House. The Ursuline Sisters Mission program provides supportive housing opportunities to individuals experiencing homelessness.

Donated funds will directly support the transitional housing program in Ashtabula County, which offers fully furnished apartments and a supportive team to help women and children overcome barriers to housing while fostering hope for their future.

Contributions included such items as gift cards to area grocers, personal care items, cleaning or paper products, household and school supplies.

For more than a decade, Beatitude House has served over 330 individuals in Ashtabula County experiencing homelessness. Each household receives a fully furnished apartment and supportive services onsite at the former, renovated St. Joseph School on Lake Avenue.

Residents typically stay in the program for six months to a year, benefiting from comprehensive support as they work towards stable housing and a brighter future.
