Bethany Haven can only exist through the generous donations that we recieve.
The Sisters of Mercy West Mid West gave us a Mercy Ministries Grant beginning in Fiscal Year 2014 (1 July 2013 - 30 June 2014). They increased the grant for Fiscal Year 2015 and have continued supporting us in 2016.
The Tri-County United Way (formerly Nelson County United Way) has supported us annually from the very beginning.
The shelter house is owned by the Housing Authority of Bardstown, and the Nelson County Fiscal Court has paid our monthly rent from the beginning.
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.
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.
Peebles in Bardstown has done clothing drives for us twice. In September 2015, they did 30 Days of Giving for us.
AT&T has supported us in 2014 and 2015.
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. Bloomfield Middle School has been a great supporter with canned food drives. Cox's Creek Elementary has helped with food and Christmas presents. Bardstown Elementary has helped with Christmas presents.
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 and familys that contribute finacially to us.
