Operation Love

Bethany partners with Operation Love Ministries in Anderson, Indiana. Bethany is involved in gathering food and clothing donations throughout the year and also assists Operation Love with other aspects of their ministry.

Operation Love Ministries’ mission is to serve the community of Madison County through:

Serving the poor and hurting by meeting their emergency physical and emotional needs, by walking beside them as they move toward self-sufficiency and by sharing Christ’s love with them. Assisting churches, businesses and people in learning how to help those in need and by assisting them in connecting with compassionate ministries which match their skills and interests. Providing a safe environment where all may come together to experience God’s love in action.

Dove Harbor

Bethany partners with Dove Harbor in Anderson, Indiana by donating and sorting clothing.

Dove Harbor is Madison County´s largest transitional shelter for women and women with children. We provide a unique balance by combining Christian principles with professional social work standards in a program unlike any other shelter in Madison County. We are not an emergency shelter, but rather, an extended-stay shelter. Through an extended period of time, we provide a safe harbor in which women can heal and learn successful life skills. Thus, they are empowered with the self-confidence to walk away from unhealthy situations and avoid ever returning.
