Since its opening in October 2017, Bethany House has welcomed 85 women wih 28 small children. They come from 24 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and South and Central America. The average length of stay has been 10 months. Most arrived in this country as unaccompanied children seeking asylum and ‘aged out’ of the children’s detention centers. More recently, some come to us directly from the border, from the MPP (“Remain in Mexico”) program, Afghanistan evacuation efforts or various border shelters. While here, the women take ESL, GED or high school classes. Several women at Bethany House have been able to attend local colleges, one of whom graduated this year.
Don’t miss out…Join us for our 6th Anniversary celebration!
