Adopt-A-Family for Christmas

Each year, in collaboration with North Shore – LIJ Health System as well as various other church and civic groups, Bethany coordinates a Christmas Program wherein our women and children are provided gifts, clothing, food and other surprises for the holiday. This program is now beginning its thirty-fifth year!


Haven is the Molloy College/Bethany House Coalition for the Homeless. Founded in 1994, Haven sponsored an all day college-wide series of workshops on homelessness entitled "Living on the Edge: Hungry and Homeless on Long Island" in Spring of 1995. In October of 1996, Haven orchestrated a highly successful event called BOXTOWN at which over eighty students "spent a night out" in a cardboard box in solidarity with the homeless. This event was not only a consciousness - raising effort but also a fund raising activity, and netted over $9,000 to assist with Bethany House's newest program Rest Stop.

BOXTOWN II was held in October of 1997 with over 150 students, faculty and staff members participating to raise over $15,000. BOXTOWN continued the tradition annually through 2002. In 2003, Bethany House added a new program, BOXTOWN Comes to Bethany, wherein participants spend an evening at one of Bethany's residences to understand firsthand the struggles of the homeless families we serve.

Work Out

Work Out is Bethany's job training and employment program. Workout provides job placement and career counseling to women who are seeking entry into the job market. Bethany House also has an agency commitment to hire whenever possible, the homeless women who have at one time been guests of Bethany.
