Our goal is to instill positive habits in the children and support family efforts in promoting education.
In the fall of 2013, the Women with Spirit Education Committee which is comprised of the Sisters of Notre Dame, the Ursuline Sisters, and the Sisters of the Most Holy Trinity combined efforts to develop a new creative initiative for our children on the near West side of Cleveland.
The committee rented a house located at 2066 West 47th Street, off of Lorain Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio in 2013 and named it the House of Champions. The House of Champions is a non-profit after-school program that provides a nurturing and safe family-like environment where children in grades one through four can thrive with additional opportunities to learn life skills and gain the confidence to succeed.
With the addition of our new house that opened in May of 2019, we now welcome twenty-four children, from Urban Community School, and from Metro Catholic School.
House of Champions taught me how to eat meals together as a family, how to share, and how to act better. ~Jessalyn
