• Donate. Share. Care.

    In the US, an alarming number of 12 to 17 year olds, both male and females, are targeted by human traffickers who deal in child prostitution, sexual slavery and pornography, and by sexual predators and pedophiles. In the U.S., this is a thriving $13 billion a year criminal industry. Help us thwart those who prey on vulnerable youth.

Hot August nights are coming to an end soon. Labor Day - a national holiday celebrating workers all over America - is fast approaching.

One of the things that make Beulah's Place extraordinary in getting the teens we rescue off the streets and into a stable schedule is, well, labor. Work. Jobs. Viable employment. When our teens start working regularly, it provides not only financial compensation, but valuable structure for their lives. Having something to get up for, show up for, and "do" during the day or night greatly aids the independence they eventually acquire.

We couldn't have the success we have without employment partners. Partners in business who will give our teens a face-to-face interview and not just make a decision off an electronic application. The application is necessary, but our teens don't have consistent residential history most of the time. Few even have a bank account or a driver's license. When someone is homeless, at any age, the things we may take for granted when we have a home or shelter and search out a new job are things that our kids can't put on an application.

This doesn't in any way mean our teens are unskilled. It's generally the opposite! Our teens learn quickly and have tremendous intelligence. Often, it's a matter of getting them to recognize their value and worth and channeling their intellect into a training field. Many choose college to broaden their scope of learning and future career options.

Whether the job be in fast food, big box stores, super markets, restaurants, or trade jobs, every day is a "labor day" for our kids! They work hard and usually excel in their place of employment fairly quickly. They are grateful for the opportunity to earn their way through life!

We appreciate those who have helped our teens earn jobs over the years:
Redmond Super Walmart , Dutch Bros. Central Oregon , Les Schwab Tire Center (Bend, Redmond), McDonald's Redmond/Madras/Prineville/Burns (owned by Paul & Kathy Rodby), Albertson's (Bend), as well as other new business partners coming on long side of us.

For every one who works, we hope you will have a great weekend of rest this Labor Day. For those who must work the holiday, hope you will be safe and find another way to take your due day of rest.

Happy end of summer!
Ed & Andi
