Thank you to the Barry Team and the Niagara Chapter of the Ontario Insurance Adjusters Association for selecting Bethlehem Housing and Support Services as their charity of choice for their DIY fundraisers. Collectively, the two events raised more than $1,600 that will support the important work of our organization.
Through the support of the community, Bethlehem Housing and Support Services was able to hold 74 group sessions in 2015-2016, including housing supports, goal planning, personal empowerment, mental health awareness, and money management.

On Friday, September 23rd we said goodbye to Tiffany, our Early Learning Centre Coordinator, as she heads off on maternity leave for the next year. Tiffany has a passion for working with children and families at Bethlehem Place and within the community. Using her years of experience as a Registered Early Childhood Educator, she has strengthened the programming in our ELC and continually seeks ways to help ensure we create places and experiences where children, families, and educators explore, question, and learn together.
Congratulations Tiffany! Enjoy your time with your family and your new little boy!

We're excited to tell you about a newly launched initiative that will help lower-income families access the Canada Learning Bond (CLB). The Canada Learning Bond helps families living on lower incomes start saving for their children's education by providing each eligible child with up to $2000 in contributions toward a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP).
Bethlehem Housing and Support Services has partnered with education savings advocate SmartSAVER to offer a new online Canada Learning Bond application called Start My RESP. Click here for more information on how to start your application.
