Bethany Basics

It Starts With One Step       

Families come to Bethany House from many different paths. No matter the twists and turns life has thrown at them, they come to Bethany House seeking the same thing, a place to find rest and restoration. That’s what we provide: care and comfort, community and support, encouragement and inspiration, each leading them one step closer to home.

Our story.

Amazon Delivers Smiles to BHS

Our friends at the Amazon Fulfillment Center in NKY were #deliveringsmiles to Bethany House recently. We were thrilled to be chosen to receive 2,000 “Box of Smiles” gifts for our families, and they surprised us with an amazing donation of $50,000!

Thank you to all of the associates at CVG/NKY for selecting the gifts and packing the boxes for our children and their moms and dads. You certainly made all of us at Bethany House smile!

Bethany House receives largest gift in its history: $1.25 Million from Bezos Day 1 Families Fund

Bethany House Services is proud to have been selected as a Bezos Day 1 Families Fund leadership award recipient. The gift of $1.25 million is the largest gift we have received in our history! The Day 1 Families Fund supports organizations that are moving the needle on family homelessness.

We plan to use this generous investment toward the cost of one new, consolidated family shelter and comprehensive service center for families experiencing homelessness. This facility is our top priority and will enable us to improve services to parents and children and reach more families each year.

We are grateful to the Day 1 Families Fund for their support and look forward to continuing to make a positive impact for families in our community.
