It starts with one step. Families come to Bethany House from many different paths, life experiences and circumstances. 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 a home of their own. Here are some ways you can help:

  • Shelter Program

    The comprehensive Shelter Program includes temporary housing, case management, meals, laundry, transportation, phone access, child/parent programming, life skills lessons, relocation assistance, family activities, outings and miscellaneous special needs.

    $1,367 per person
  • Child/Parent Program

    The Child/Parent Program assesses and addresses the special needs of the individual children in the shelter. This includes working with the schools as well as mental and physical health providers; health classes are held; supervised evening activities and field trips take place; clothing, shoes, supplies and program materials are provided as needed.

    $175 per child
  • Guest Relocation

    When a Bethany House shelter family has successfully finished the program, they move to permanent, independent housing at which time they are helped with the basics for cleaning the apartment, paper supplies and 3-4 days of food staples for the family.

    $310 per family
  • Back to Work

    A woman often leaves the shelter for the workplace and has particular unmet needs for which she has not resources. This may be work shoes, transportation assistance, short-term child care funds and the like.

    $130 per person
  • Daily Nutrition/Food Service

    BHS enjoys the generosity of many individuals and groups prepare brunches and dinners at the shelter. Others donate snacks, cereal, beverages and baby formula. This saves BHS thousands of dollars annually while still preparing/serving fresh, nutritious meals for our families

    $95 daily for 25 individuals
  • Bus Travel

    Men, women and children (only infants ride free) in the shelter program and occasionally in the Post Shelter Support Program are eligible for a bus card each month to meet their transportation needs for work, school, training, various appointments, etc.

    $126 for a week for a family of four
