We are not giving up.....and we need your help.On February 1st, 2012 the
Salvation Army announced that they were closing Bethesda Centre. The
residents of Bethesda (young mother's and their infants), began a grass roots
effort that has quickly grown to include community members, stakeholders, past Bethesda residents, friends, relatives and families. We have formed a committee dedicated to SAVE BETHESDA.
The Save Bethesda Committee is continuing our efforts to save this program, or find ways of creating a new program for young mothers. Stay tuned to this page for more info in the coming weeks. If you are willing to help with committee efforts in the future please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
How to get your Refund from the Salvation Army:
The Save Bethesda Committee is researching setting up a new program for
the moms and babies in London and surrounding area and communicating
with interested partners.

We hope you consider donating to the new program we are trying to set
up for the future girls that will need our support. Thank you so much
for all of your support in our effort this far. Stay tuned to this page for more info in the coming weeks. We are not done yet!

SAVE BETHESDA LONDON CAUSE:
We need you, our fellow community members to ACT now! Time is of the essence, and we need to work with the Salvation Army in order to achieve the goal of 1.5 million dollars by May 31st.
Let’s show everyone, especially the young mothers of Bethesda, that the
community is definitely striving towards a common goal - SAVING BETHESDA - with not only words, but by our ACTIONS!!!
The Bethesda Centre offers
accommodation, counseling and support to young mothers during their
pregnancy and after the birth of their babies. At Bethesda, the expecting
mothers live in a supportive and positive residential environment where
they are able to continue their education while also learning how to
care for and
nurture their babies.
The Bethesda Centre also
encompasses a Second Stage Independent Living program for parenting
young mothers and the Cantara Childcare and Parenting Resource Centre.

On May 15th a press release indicated that Justin Bieber would be making a sizable donation from proceeds from his latest single "Turn to You" on iTunes. Due to the fact that the money from this single will not be available for six months, and extension to the May 31st deadline is needed from the Salvation Army. If you believe that this program deserves to be saved and is needed, please contact the Salvation army and express your concerns.
