Bethany House Services
Bethany House Services empowers homeless and at-risk families to achieve housing stability and long-term self-sufficiency. This organization provides emergency shelter, identifies affordable housing suitable for the family’s needs, and offers short-term or medium-term rental assistance and housing relocation and stabilization services, including credit counseling, security or utility deposits, utility payments, moving cost assistance, and case management.
Cincinnati Friends Meeting supports Bethany House with an annual drive to aid in the transition to a new home. In recent years the Meeting has provided "Whole House Kits", supplying a family with the necessary items to furnish their new home.
During the holiday season, Cincinnati Friends Meeting members purchase Walmart & Target gift cards for teenagers and mothers so they, too, can celebrate the holidays. Younger children receive gifts from many other sources, but teenagers and mothers are too often forgotten.
