Dear Members and Friends of Countryside Community Church,
Your Board of Christian Outreach (BOCO) is pleased to share with you that Bethlehem House is the recipient of the 2019 Easter Offering. Founded in 2005, Bethlehem House provides emergency housing for women pregnant and in crisis. The community funded, faith-based non-profit provides social services, at no cost, to struggling families.
The Easter Offering will support the Family Life program. Once at the Bethlehem House, mothers experience structured programming and case management provided by trauma-informed staff. During their stay, women develop critical life skills such as accountability, financial literacy, parenting, addiction and recovery, faith formation and goal setting through the 12-course Family Life Program. Your contribution to the Easter Offering will support the mission of Bethlehem House and make a difference in the lives of struggling families in the Omaha community.
Thank you for your support,
The Board of Christian Outeach
- Bethlehem House provides the tools necessary for women to begin the demanding journey to cross the bridge out of poverty to self-sufficiency.
- The modest campus maintains a residency rate of 8-11 families and more than 90 percent of graduates go on to thrive in newly established self-sufficiency. On average, families reside on campus between eight to twelve months.
- The Bethlehem House mission of rebuilding and uplifting families exists because of strong community support. Thank you for supporting Bethlehem House and the worthy women who chose a better life for themselves and their families.
