BCM in the Media

Oftentimes, the stories told about Homewood emphasize the deficits in our community: violence, poverty, disinvestment. But we at Bethany Community Ministries know that good things happen here. We know that our neighbors care. Our staff care. Our community cares. We build relationships, share resources, pass on knowledge, and celebrate together. 

We've collected profiles and features highlighting the positive work we do in Homewood and beyond. Check out the videos, articles, and podcasts below!
