Mollard Hospitality Center
Our Mollard Hospitality Center houses our day programming. The Center, located on the corner of 4th and Wyandotte Streets in Southside Bethlehem, is open Monday-Friday from 8:00-4:00pm, with extended hours in extreme weather. The Hospitality Center houses the following programs:
Meal Center: Our Meal Center serves a continental or hot breakfast each weekday morning, as well as a nutritional and robust lunch meal each afternoon. Meals are prepared and served by volunteer teams from local businesses, faith organizations, community groups, or school groups. Each day, around 150 people join us for our meal services. Weekend breakfast services are offered two Saturdays and two Sundays a month thanks to volunteers from Grace Church and Jesus is the Way Ministries. Special meals are observed on the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
In 2019: 37,400 meals (including seconds) were served to over 2,800 unduplicated individuals.
Choice-Based Food Pantry Our choice-based food pantry is located in a two-story garage facility down the street from the Mollard Hospitality Center. In 2019 5,953 people were nourished. This number includes 4,071 adults; 1,245 children and 637 seniors. Our goal is to provide our clients with healthy fresh food options such a fresh vegetables and fruits. The space for our pantry has quadrupled our storage capacity allowing for more fresh food options.
Hygiene Services: Our Hospitality Center is home to one of the only free, public showers in the Valley. Those needing to wash up can take a shower in our two, newly-renovated shower facilities as well as use our laundry machine.
Wellness Center: Our Wellness Center, inside of the Hospitality Center, provides holistic services via partnerships. Twice a month, a free primary care clinic for those we serve runs out of the Wellness Center through our partnership with the Lehigh Valley Health Network "Street Medicine" Program. Additionally, a bilingual representative from Haven House visits the Wellness Center weekly, providing life skills workshops and one-on-one referral services.
Elliott Center: the Center for Community Partnerships moves people from crisis to stability by means of providing employment assistance, rental assistance, wellness services, and educational opportunities. This can only be done thanks to community partners who graciously extend their services to New Bethany guests and residents.
Additional services include mail address services, referrals, clothing vouchers, and social activities.
