Your gift makes a real impact in the lives of so many women.
The Bethlehem Haven’s women’s shelter is on the front lines protecting women who are experiencing homelessness in the face of new challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cathy came home one day in March to find all of her belongings on the porch. Her boyfriend wanted to start a new life with another woman. She was blindsided. Her name wasn’t on the lease and he wanted her gone that day.
“I spent 20 years raising our children, taking care of that house, and now I’m homeless. We’re in the middle of a pandemic. I didn’t know what to do.”
Cathy came to Bethlehem Haven when she had no place else to go. Today, she is safely housed and thriving with a new job and her own apartment.
Cathy gives a lot of credit to Bethlehem Haven. We give all the credit to you.
Your generous donations give women like Cathy hope.
