Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley to begin offering online degree program

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley, which has been providing food and shelter to its clients for more than 100 years, is now helping some of them further their education.

The Mission has partnered with San Diego Christian College to offer an online degree to its residents.

The school's president was in town Monday afternoon.

There are seven students currently enrolled in the two-year liberal studies program.

"This strengthens them and gives them a better opportunity for successful outcome maintaining their residency with us and doing all of the course work with us," said James Echement, Executive Director Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley.

Each student will receive federal grant money. No matter what the amount, it will be considered sufficient to cover the cost of their education.
