Is homelessness really an issue in Conway?
In short, yes it is. In short, yes it is. In 2018, we provided housing 60+ individuals and families and two newborns came home from the hospital to Bethlehem House.
Homelessness is not only stressful, but spiritually, emotionally, and sometimes physically, painful. Our mission is to encourage, equip, and motivate homeless or nearly homeless families and individuals to move from being alone, afraid, ashamed, and depressed to becoming independent, productive, self-supporting members of the community.
Notes From Our Residents
It is a wonderful place! They have helped me get my kids back… and get my life back on track. Of course, GOD led me here and guided me.
It is absolutely a wonderful place everybody is amazing and they do all they can to help you in any way. I feel like the Bethlehem house it's a blessing that has been laid in my path and truly allowing me to get my life together and still hold structure around me and give me guidelines to be on my way on my own.
At first it was a place to go, a place to stay when no one else wanted me, but I quickly realized that they really cared about me.
