...A Compelling Question for Sure
Most of us are familiar with the story of the Little Drummer Boy. He has a big heart and wants to honor the baby Jesus, but he doesn't have any fancy or expensive gifts to give. He does, however, have a special talent.

Three ways to participate and keep the smiles coming!


My husband and I were the first Sponsor Family for a young pregnant girl and baby to be 27 years ago. We have seen this young man come full circle. Now he is married to his lovely wife Jocelyn and has a little girl of his own who just turned one. They have also just bought their first home. We became Luke's grandparents through all these years and always will be. It's been a joy watching him grow up. We have many stories like this and that is why we still exist.

Thank you notes
Thank you notes arrive via email, mail, and through phone calls frequently. These women and children are forever grateful to us, and we are continually awed by God's grace in their lives and by how much they have blessed ours.

"Bethany House was there for me and gave me a reason to hope and make plans for a future."

"I am sure I will make it on my won because of what Bethany House taught me."

"As a family of five now, we still trust in God for all we've been given. Thank you for all your giving."

"Through my months at Bethany House I got my GED and a job."

"I had a sponsor family to take me and my son in before we could stand on our own. They were there to teach and show me how to make it."

"Beth, I admire your strength and hard work. Thank you."

Our sponsor program
The cornerstone of the Bethany House Program is our sponsor families. Do you have extra space, an open heart, the desire to help a young mother and a child? Do you believe you can provide a positive, guiding influence in the life of a hurting woman? If so, you might find the role of sponsor family to be highly rewarding. Giving and loving others is a
commandment from Christ. We are to help, encourage, and lift others up, using our time, talents, and treasure to bring healing and hope. When we give we truly receive blessings beyond our wildest imaginings. We hope you will consider stepping out in faith and making an eternal difference. Thank you for your ongoing support and prayers. Review the information here. Contact us today!
