Bethany Christian Services

helps all adult refugees within five years of arrival to prepare for, obtain, maintain, and retain employment.

In 2021 families from Mars Hill and other neighbors collaborated to come around a Refugee family of seven from Afghanistan. 

They initiated the relationship by providing 25 P.A.L.S. [play, appointments, learning, and shopping experiences] in the first 30 days of the family’s arrival. Today those P.A.L.S. have become the bridge to lasting friendships. 

In addition, we are able to sponsor 20 pairs of siblings, moving them out of a temporary large border facility into loving foster homes until they can be reunited with family.

We are also providing full trauma-based training for parents, trauma counseling for children, and a dedicated Bethany advocate supporting the family and working to reunify the children with their families.
