I have known the founders for a number of years and worked with them on Beulah's place on many occasions and have seen the results of their work. I have met several of the girls and their fantastic life change! Totally incredible especially if you know Andi Burgers story.

The world could take many lesions from the work, effort and most importantly the heart they show in all they do. So proud to have taken a small part in helping them and see them change lives and the world one person at a time.

We've supported Beulah's Place for a few years now. There is no one more deserving than Ed and Andi Buerger. They are a critical lifeline for at risk teens in Central Oregon. We are honored to be a small part in what they are accomplishing.

I have had the honor of working with Andi Bueger, volunteering for Beulah’s Place for the past two years.

Two years ago, I had just retired from being a special education teacher. I was talking with a friend about wanting to volunteer and give back to the community. She told me about Andi Buerger and Beulah’s Place. She said, “Andy is the real deal!”, and she was right!

Andi works tirelessly to create a safe, loving place for homeless teens who have no one to help them during their time of dire need.

She has helped numerous teens get out of a dangerous situation and into a loving, caring safe place to live. In addition, she makes sure they have access to food, transportation, education, and medical services and counseling if needed.

Andi has been down this road herself, and puts her heart and soul into helping these children. She knows the pain they are going through. Andi listens deeply to their story with an open mind and heart, accepts them where they are, and offers love and encouragement to help them be the beautiful person they were meant to be.

With her support, the teens she has worked with have flourished. Most have finished their basic education and many have gone on to college or have obtained good jobs.

Andi wants to do more to help these struggling young adults and is in the process of trying to secure a building where they can come for a safe place during the day. It would provide structure and a caring environment for those teens who are often surrounded by chaos and danger.

There are more children every day, many more than we are aware of, who are living in an abusive situation, and Beulah’s Place is a beacon of light and hope for them.

I can’t say enough good about Beulah’s Place, and I strongly believe that is deserves the recognition of being a 2020 Top-Rated Nonprofit.

Sincerely yours,

Mary Grant

Beulah's Place is an organization that is helping disadvantaged young adults continue to grow.

Beulah's place helps these young adults find shelter and jobs to help them through their tough times. It also has a building for them to meet and help each other.

Andi is a bundle of energy and is always looking for ways to help Beulah's Place. She arranges fund raisers and also gets the community involved in remodeling the building that has been purchased.

We have been involved with Beulah's Place since shortly after it was founded over a decade ago, and have known it’s founders - Andi and Ed Buerger - for even longer. We even knew Beulah Buerger, the generous and kind woman for whom Beulah’s Place is named.

Most homeless kids are cold, hungry, frightened — and completely alone. It is exactly these young people who are targeted by professional human traffickers. Lured by the false promise of a temporary warm bed, a meal, and protection, these kids become quickly become literal slaves, doing the bidding of their traffickers. They are unwittingly lured into the devastatingly dangerous world where, often, the only end-game is death.

The criminal enterprise of human trafficking must stop. Andi Buerger, director of Beulah’s Place, knows this from the innermost reaches of her very soul, for she was trafficked by her family from infancy through her teen years. She was lost, alone, severely abused. She walked in the shoes of those young human beings who have, for over a decade, sought help and safety from Beulah’s Place.

With love an devotion, Beulah’s Place reaches warm arms around these children, gently assuring them they need not fear - there IS a place for them in this world. Andi and Ed help them find this place. The kids learn to trust again, and more importantly, I have seen that they learn to trust in themselves, perhaps for the very first time.

When first they come to Beulah’s Place, they are provided with food, safe shelter, medical and dental care, transportation. Almost immediately they become a working member of society, through Andi’s connections with local businesses. They complete their high school education - some go on to receive a college degree.

With a huge success rate, these once lost children become, very quickly, productive members of their communities. They learn to depend on their own strengths, they become self-confident. They find a new belief … ultimately, in themselves.

Beulah’s Place does not see color, creed, gender, religion, but rather, sees lost individuals, and extends a loving hand, in the true spirit of generosity. Unlike many charities, Beulah’s Place is volunteer run, and volunteer driven. This is community as it should be.

I know Andi personally and she is the most generous, loving, genuine person. She truly cares about and for all of the people she meets and is resilient and determined to help in any way she can. Beulah's Place reflects all of those traits as a non-profit and is building such an important platform. The heart that Beulah's Place has for at-risk teens and the goals and values they stand on are so important and honest. I truly believe Beulah's Place has and will continue to make massive movements in the direction of safety, care, and comfort for all at-risk teens that walk through their doors.
