I have been volunteering at Bethany House for 20 years. It has been a wonderful place to make a difference in the lives of women and children who have fallen on hard times. Through the years I have enjoyed not only the hard work but also the comraderie among guests and volunteers. My children and I have done it all from cooking meals, to designing appeal cards, from collecting cereal boxes for the shelter to running a carnival booth at the summer festival. We love to see the looks on the children's faces when you read them a book, or help them with a craft. Overall, it has been deeply enriching and rewarding to, along with my family, be able to contribute and make our own small corner of the world at BHS just a little bit better.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
