Each year, hundreds of women seek safety and shelter at Bethlehem Haven.
Women like Michele, a proud mother of three who made the most difficult decision of her life. She left her husband who had been abusing her for years. Even though her friends and family wanted her to leave, none of them could offer a place to stay.
“I didn’t know where I’d go. I thought my mom would take me in, but she couldn’t. I already left and wasn’t going back. I did the right thing. But now I was homeless.”
Michele was referred to Bethlehem Haven where she found a community of caring people who understood her trauma, her fears, and her heartbreak.
“They really listened to me and encouraged me the whole time. They never gave up on me and my potential. I never had so many people love me like they did.”
A warm hug, a shoulder to cry on, a hand up when it was needed most – these are the priceless moments you have offered to the women at Bethlehem Haven.
Being homeless is a very lonely place to be – with no friends or family to turn to – but you made hundreds of women know that they were not alone. They could count on you.
