Why do I support Bethany Hill Place?
I believe that many of you feel as grateful as I do for the many unearned blessings in our lives – including the abiding love and support of our family and friends, the security of a safe home, and the gifts of strong health, education, and employment. Not everyone is as fortunate.
For more than 10 years as a volunteer tutor and mentor, I have seen amazing transformations in the lives of residents at Bethany Hill Place. Individuals and families who have suffered homelessness, poverty, illness, addiction, unemployment, or other personal/ family crises change their lives through the magic of a safe home, educational resources, personal accountability, and a support-rich community. Now, as a member of the Board of Trustees for the past five years, I see even more clearly that the continued sustainability of this organization depends on the generosity of our donors
Why is Bethany Hill Place so effective?
Individual Development toward Independence : When new homeless residents arrive at Bethany Hill Place, the program director helps each person devise a development plan to work toward unique goals of physical/ mental health, financial independence, family growth, and career/ education advancement. Regular follow up sessions monitor progress, provide needed resources, and encourage success. This planning plus accountability model has been extremely effective.
Community Group Programs : In addition to addressing immediate critical life needs (food, clothes, furniture, mental health/ addiction support, etc.), Bethany Hill Place adjusts to the evolving needs of its current population. With the support of professionals and volunteers, the staff provides a variety of creative programs to address common needs (parenting workshops, financial counseling, job application/ interviewing skills, reading clubs, self-care sessions, summer camp for children, leadership training, college scholarships, community events, etc.).
Bottom Line: The funding for these programs depends entirely upon donor gifts.
