The children and families living at Bethlehem this Christmas experienced the generosity of our community this holiday season.
On November 19, 2019 the Early Childhood Community Development Centre (ECCDC) hosted their annual Early Learning and Child Care Awards of Excellence. Our EarlyON Coordinator, Tiffany Grant was honoured with the EarlyON Child & Family Centres Practitioner Award.
On November 8, 20189 the Women in Niagara Council hosted their 19th Annual Women in Business Awards at the Marriott on The Falls celebrating the contributions and achievements of women from across Niagara. Our Executive Director, Lori Beech was honoured with the Community Impact Award.
We are delighted to welcome our newest intern, Emily Zwart. Emily is in the Media and Communication Studies program at Brock University. During her time with Bethlehem, she hopes to gain experience and skills by actively participating in the creative process for developing communications and online promotions for our Housing Hero campaign and Empty Bowls fundraiser.
Following a presentation to share the Five-Year Review of Niagara’s 10-Year Housing and Homelessness Action Plan to The Regional Municipality of Niagara’s Public Health & Social Services Committee on October 8th 2019, Bethlehem Housing and Support Services Executive Director Lori Beech noticed a substantial difference in the supportive response from regional councillors on the committee.
The two inspired 11-year-olds knew that this year’s Energy Crusher Mountain Bike Race, held on September 29 as part of the Grape and Wine Festival line up, would be the perfect opportunity to find thirsty donors. The 25+ km enduro style race course includes lots of climbing, tight twisty single-track that should be challenging yet safe for all riders.
Niagara Area Jeep Club Raises a $4000 donation for Bethlehem. On August 24th, 2019 if you owned a Jeep, the challenge was to get it as covered in as much mud as possible!
Caring and genuine, the Enercare Fresh Start Program was developed with input from Enercare employees. They wanted to ensure that Fresh Start would provide significant support to the communities they lived and worked in. Recognizing that families who find themselves in a temporary housing due to unfortunate and unforeseen circumstances have little to no processions, the Enercare Fresh Start Program is designed to help families transitioning from temporary housing to a home of their own.
