Bethany House has been blessed to inherit a house from a long-time supporter Annie who recently passed away.  
Annie's last wish for her home was that we convert it to a safe house for women fleeing domestic violence.  

Your participation in this year's Race to End Domestic Violence will support our Safehouse Expansion Campaign.  This campaign will help us build the new safe house, which will double our capacity to serve women escaping domestic violence.  The Expansion Campaign will also help us to provide more shelter, counseling, career readiness training, health care, child care, and a wide variety of life advancement programming for women and children in our safe houses and Aftercare program!

Why Participate?


You can save lives by helping us to build a new safe house for women escaping domestic violence.  A long-time Bethany House supporter willed her home to Bethany House with the request that it be converted into a safe house for victims of domestic violence.  

Your participation in the Race to End Domestic Violence will benefit the Bethany House Safehouse Expansion Program.  Funds will help us renovate the house and expand our entire organization to provide more shelter, counseling, health care, child care, career readiness training, and many more life advancement programs for women transitioning to safe, independent living.

Thank you for your life saving support!

How Your Support Makes a Difference

Safehouse Expansion Campaign

Each year, we receive an average of 500 call through our Helpline for women in our community seeking safe haven from abuse.  Far too often, we have to turn women away who muster the courage to finally leave.  By participating in the Race to End Domestic Violence and raising funds for our campaign, you can help us build an additional safe house and double our capacity to rescue women escaping abuse.  You can help us to say, "yes," more often!  Sign up today!

Thank you for your support!
