How You Can Help

Welcome to Bethany Haven!

Bethany Haven is the parent organization for four programs which serve the homeless in Bardstown, Nelson County, Kentucky. Christy’s Place is our transitional shelter for homeless women (with or without children), Harbour House Inn is our transitional shelter for men,  and Room in the Inn is our emergency overnight shelter for men, women and children.

Our newest program is Street Outreach-reaching out, engaging and providing much needed services to those who are homeless and living unsheltered.

At Bethany Haven, we give people the opportunity to get back on their feet; if someone is worried about where they will sleep for the night or what they will eat for the day, they are unable to look past those immediate needs. We provide food and shelter, so our residents are able to look beyond the immediate and begin to consider how they might work for a better future for themselves and their families.

Christy’s Place

Christy’s Place has 6 private bedrooms, 3 shared bathrooms, a shared kitchen, a shared living room and playroom and a resource center.

Harbour House Inn

Harbour House Inn has 3 shared bedrooms, along with 2 shared bathrooms, a shared kitchen and dining room, a shared living room and a resource center.

Room in the Inn

Emergency overnight shelter for men, women and children. Our guests spend the night at one of the faithful churches.
