What is a Sponsor Family?
We'll let Connie tell you all about her experience: Years ago, at age 17, I was expecting my first child, Jonathan (Jon).

Courtney's Story
It was my senior year of high school when I became pregnant. Like most teenagers I was rebellious, angry and insecure. I was also in an extremely abusive relationship, and believed I deserved every derogatory and physical mistreatment I got. Drug charges soon put my then boyfriend in jail for a year and I was left to face one of the hardest decisions of my life.... Continue


Tis Not the Season for Bullying
The Holiday Season is traditionally a time of family, friends, love, joy, sharing and good tidings.

Tis Not the Season for Bullying
Thirty years ago Bethany House introduced us to a disheveled, pregnant, 17-year-old "throw away" child, Jo.

Walking through the rubble...and winning!
If you’ve been alive more than two decades, you’ve likely experienced more than your own fair share of life-rubble.

Not your typical story
