I realy cannot begin to say what a beautiful blessing KBH has been to me. Its like when you are in tears worrying whats to become of you-homelessness or worse-KBH is here with a hand up and your tears are gone. Its as though all of Katie Blairs sweet heart is bestowed to so many-a part of her carries on in each of us. I am truely grateful for the staff like Eileen and Candy, and for so many that dedicate themselves to this humanitarian, Christian,and higher calling of God. God does truely work through the ladies of the Bethsaida Community. My life is full of possibilities now. Thank You Bethsaida MARGARET DAWSON

Hello KBH In the storm I called life, KBH has been like a trusted friend that has met me halfway. Even though we just met I feel I can trust in many ways. During these hard days the KBH family has most assuredly lended me a helping hand. I know there will be safety, comfort and plenty of food to eat. By learning from every experience here we all have strength to offer one another. MAUREEN

On several occasions I have heard women who have directly benefited from Bethsaida Community talk about how their very special programs have changed their lives. The programs are innovative and the results are very impressive! We are truly blessed to have such a program serving the women in Southeastern Connecticut!

I was blessed with the privilege of meeting some of the women being assisted by Bethsaida. They are strong, brave women, who because of the wrong choice of partner, have gone through horrific experiences and are being helped to get back on their feet by Bethsaida. Where would they be without this organization?

I fell in love with Bethsaida Community when I learned about its mission to give homeless women a safe haven so that they can get their lives on the right track. I was very inspired to become a part of the organization when I'd met some of the women that have been through the program and heard their success stories.

Ways to make it better...

I could have staying involved during and after my pregnancy. I was too high risk and on bed rest...

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding. They have to fundraise a good portion of their annual budget.

One thing I'd also say is that...

They do excellent work with measurable results. You can be assured that your donated dollar will be fully utilized toward the mission.

SHE GETS THAT CHANCE TO LOVE HERSELF AND OTHERS AND TO LET GO OF ALL THE FEAR THAT SHE HAS BEEN LIVING WITH.
