Bethany Haven can only exist through the generous donations that we recieve from community members and grants.
We gratefully acknowledge our major donors; United Way, the Sisters of Mercy and the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth.
The Salvation Army of Nelson County provides a voucher to Save-A-Lot here in Bardstown every month that allows us to supplement the food pantry.
Corvin's Furniture has been a tremendous by helping us obtain new mattresses, bunk beds and even great prices for new flooring. In 2018, they held a Christmas drive for the children at Bethany Haven and spent time with the children when they delivered the presents.
Lowes in Bardstown has generously provided new appliances to the shelter. In 2014 we were glad to get a wonderful high-efficiency washer and dryer. In 2015, Lowes replaced every appliance in the kitchen: a large standing freezer, 2 matching refrigerators, a new gas stove, 2 microwaves, and a coffee pot.
Our county and city schools have generously contributed through monetary donations and collection drives for food, clothing and household goods. Groups at Nelson County High, including the FBLA, ROTC, Key Club, and National Honor society have helped. Thomas Nelson High School has helped through the Beta Club and most recently by the Penny Wars in the whole school. Bethlehem High School has provided help through their National Honor Society. Bloomfield Middle School has been a great supporter with canned food drives. Cox's Creek Elementary has helped with food and Christmas presents and Bardstown Elementary has helped with Christmas presents and monetary donations through a school drive.
Local businesses such as KORT and 150 Quick Stop have helped with Christmas presents.
Nelson County Drug Court has collected paper products for us.
We have a great partnership with St. Vincent DePaul in Bardstown in serving our residents with needed items. Donations of clothing and other items that we cannot use immediately are given to SVDP to help someone else, and it's possible that a future resident might get help from them.
From the beginning, the Ministerial Association of Nelson County has supported us.
And there are many wonderful individuals, families and churches that contribute finacially to us. To date, Room in the Inn has over 200 volunteers! Thank you to all who have supported Bethany Haven and Room in the Inn, you allow us to continue our mission in helping the families of Nelson County!
