Betel & Friends started years ago when a friend simply asked Betel to come and serve with her at a shelter. The one invite created a wave of opportunities for Betel to gather her friends and serve throughout the MD/DC area. After serving for a few years and seeing the direct impact of her group of friends, she thought what if we create the opportunity for others to serve with their friends, co-workers, classmates, etc. As a result, Betel & Friends a non-profit that serves as an incubator of change agents that are empowered to help our local communities is now being formed. Betel & Friends will modernize the concept of charity work by gathering professionals and creating the time to give back to other nonprofits in their local communities.
