Families In Crisis & Disaster Relief
Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) provides opportunities for families to achieve self-sufficiency by offering community-based programs designed to bridge homelessness and independence. Every February, Beth Or houses a few families for the month. Members volunteer to provide meals, daily transportation, and chaperone overnight. To get involved, contact Nancy Shaffer-End or Lynn Edelman.
Hope Gardens is Inter-Faith Housing Alliance’s transitional housing program for low-income families with children. This program provides a secure home for families for up to 2 years while they gain the tools needed to become financially stable and self-sufficient. Beth Or donates fresh produce from our Corner of the Land Garden to their residents, shelter families and food cupboard during the summer and fall growing seasons, and non-perishable food throughout the year.
Disaster Relief is an important part of our Tikkun Olam. When a natural disaster strikes, Beth Or takes action by quickly raising and disbursing funds to vetted organizations, and/or organizing a team to help with recovery efforts.
