I became aware of the Bethlehem Center's mission and activities through Bible Study lead by Pastor Jennings. I started donating to the Beth because I was convinced of the good works done by Pastor Jennings and all the other hard workers and volunteers. Then I became a volunteer at the Beth and eventually became a Board member. I still donate and volunteer at the Beth as I continue to believe in its mission. It truly serves as a safe, Christian haven for children and youth in the neighborhood. The documented strides made by the Beth in literacy are amazing and its literacy program has been adopted by other organizations and churches and endorsed by our local educators. I only wish the services offered for children and adults in the Alton Park neighborhood had been available to me when I was growing up and feeling very alone and unloved in a very dysfunctional family. Keep up the great work!!!

The Bethlehem Center offers children educational opportunities, help with school work, exercise, nutrition, and fun activities. I really love that the kids have the opportunity to earn money throughout the program, and at the end are given a lesson in budgeting when they are paired with adults to spend their earnings. Not only do they have programs for children, but they serve the community in many ways focusing on healty lifestyle changes.

I came to The Beth 50 years ago and I have not left. As a student, teacher/coach, board member, donor and executive director. I am blown away each day I serve this community and beyond through the Bethlehem Center. God's hand is always moving in this ministry to bring hope to the staff, board and participants. Check it out and your life will never be the same.

There are a lot of really cool kids at the Beth and they are really nice. The Beth helps with all your school needs. They also care about who you can't be around and what you shouldn't do.

As a mom who has worked with the children and staff at the Beth for everything from fund raising to Christmas shopping with the kids, I appreciate the safe haven and opportunities the Beth provides for our children in Chattanooga. The children are precious, and the staff is always responsive and appreciative. What a great organization and resource!!

I am thoroughly impressed with what the Bethlehem Center is doing for the city of Chattanooga. It's wholesome community service I have found unparalleled with similar institutions. The staff I have found to manifest a consistent patient and self-sacrificing disposition that is rarely seen in this busy age we live in.

The BETH is more than a community center, it is a city of refuge within a city. A place where young and old alike can find direction and encouragement. The programs they offer for the community do not merely sustain and provide wholesome entertainment. In addition to this, the staff are dedicated to educating, inspiring, and ministering to the needs of the family and the individual heart. Past history and the present day testifies to the truth of this fact. What a different America it would be if every community had their own Bethlehem Center!

Although I am sure the BETH could improve, at the moment I cannot think of anything. Perhaps funds for more playground equipment.

What is unique about this organization?

The nature of the community service that is offered. The BETH works with the whole person. It provides rehabilitation instead of a crutch. It is the only community center that I know of that instructs persons on: how to cook healthfully, garden, as well as the usual social support.

I have benefited from the Bethlehem Center a number of years. As a child, I attended the Good Shepherd Fold Day Care Center. As a teen, I participated in various activities at the Bethlehem Center. As an adult, I am privileged to be a part of their Economic Development. I love the haven that "THE BETH" provides for children and adults. The center offers programs that can benefit any individual in any life situation. I am PROUD to have been a part of the BETH, and that the BETH is still a part of me!

Several years ago I had the privilege of teaching under Lurone Jennings as my principal. He set an example for his teachers and students to follow Jesus Christ and that we are a result of our thoughts and actions. Lurone has brought this philosophy to the Bethlehem Center and all who enter in. Lurone remains a mentor and inspiration to me as a teacher and Christian.

I would expand the educational programs to include job search and providing the support to learn the "hows and whys" of finding and keeping a job.

This is a wonderful inter-city program. The children come to the center after school for help with their homework, as well as recreation and learning God's word. There is a wonderful summer program which focases on raising the reading skills and math performance of approximately 110 students enrolled in the program. My church has served lunches for one week each summer for the last three years. Everyone involved in this outreach activity has received a tremendous blessing each year. I can wait for our week of service this summer.

Do nothing. I would give them funding to expand their program and make improvements to the facility.
