Bethany House is a Catholic Worker House of Hospitality sheltering homeless women and their children.  Along with operating an emergency shelter, Bethany House also operates and emergency food cupboard for women and children. Women in need of assistance are welcome to come to the cupboard any weekday. We ask them to limit their requests to once a month. Bethany House also has a clothing room, located in the rear of the house, offering used clothing for women and children at no cost to them. It is available to the women and children in the shelter and also to women of the neighborhood two mornings a week. Benefactors of the house donate the clothes and no fee is charged for this service. We also serve as a drop-in center for women and children during daytime hours Monday through Friday. Women are welcome to drop by for support, encouragement, advocacy, friendship, and comfort as the need arises in their daily life. Our focus is to provide hospitality so that all who come to our door feel welcomed and valued.
