Last Wednesday night, May 18th, 2016 was a huge success thanks to an incredible team of volunteers from Bethany House and Shira Psychic Medium. This large group of ladies gave their hearts to help Bethany House charity raise over $14,000.00 to help homeless women and children in Nassau County at the Rockville Links Club. Many of the women and children helped by Bethany House are victims of domestic violence.
The evening kicked off with an incredible team of readers and energy healers tuning into their abilities to give the fundraiser attendees some valuable advice and healing during private sessions. Shira Psychic Medium then delivered an unbelievable gallery reading to an audience of over 120 people, helping them connect to their deceased loved ones. Personally, I think my favorite part was when Spirit told me I needed to speak with the “Kelly’s” and an entire table raised their hands….as that was their last name. Gotta love Spirit!
The evening even received political support, when Senator, Todd Kaminsky, gave an uplifting speech, commanding that he would do all he possibly could to support Bethany House. Days later, we learned that Sister Aimee Koonmen of Bethany House, was awarded the Town of Hempstead’s 216 Making a Difference Award.
If you’d like to learn more about Bethany House, here’s a great synopsis of their mission:
Bethany House is a composite of residential options for women and children who are caught in the crisis of homelessness. Bethany defines its mission as a response to its belief that each person deserves and needs adequate food, clothing, and shelter, provided in a nurturing and sustaining environment.
Bethany House exists to strengthen and assist those women and children from Long Island who are deprived of the basic resources required for natural and healthy growth and development. Bethany House seeks to provide a homelike atmosphere wherein shelter, care, and comprehensive services combine to encourage the individual or family to attain self-sufficiency and restore human dignity.
To achieve this end, Bethany House:
Employs a multi-services approach of supportive counseling, family life education and specific programs to those made vulnerable to crisis.
Advocates and networks with other agencies to obtain needed services and benefits for those in its care.
Creates opportunities for change on the individual case level, and acts to effect broader change on the systemic level when recurring social problems are presented.
Seeks to educate and involve the community at large in a concerted effort to prevent homelessness when possible, and to respond effectively to it when preventive efforts fail
Bethany House is committed to work to assure and protect the dignity and individual worth of each person, particularly that of the women and children who have been deprived of the basic right to shelter.
