Sometimes the best way to understand the impact of Bethlehem Inn is through a story:
Jasmine was fleeing an abusive partner. With her four children, she moved in with friends in Bend. Working hard every day to juggle three part-time jobs and parenting, she found her herself homeless when the temporary living situation ended. Fortunately, a school counselor recommended Bethlehem Inn. It took about 30 days at the Inn for Jasmine to get her family needs sorted out. We helped Jasmine and family find an apartment, and access additional resources. Jasmine now has a future. Her children are stable in school, and she is advancing her own education while making enough to live on through her work.
