I joined the board of Bethany Hill Place in 2017, in search of a way to give back to the community. As a marketer, I thought my professional skills could help the organization create awareness and fundraise. While that certainly has been a major component in my involvement on the board, it goes further. BHP is a tight-knit community. In addition to providing affordable housing, BHP offers its residents learning opportunities and programming. I was honored to be asked to participate in the children's summer camp one year. I led a group of 20-or-so enthusiastic kids through a yoga class. We stretched, meditated and joked a bit together throughout the class. At the end, I got the biggest and most affectionate group hug of my life. It was then that I truly realized what a special place BHP is. And how a small contribution can really go a long way.
