Volunteer with Our Partners

Bethany partners with organizations in our community that share our geographic focus, understand and commit to the Christian faith, have similar values for community transformation as Bethany, and align with the strategic focus of the congregation. Check out how you can get involved with our great partners.

Aurora Commons

The Aurora Commons

The Aurora Commons is a neighborhood living room that provides a safe space of hospitality to rest and pursue relationships, and it provides resources for those in need along the Aurora corridor. The Commons was originally established by churches in 2011; they host weekly open hours, wound and foot care services via a mobile medical clinic, and women’s-only anti-trafficking programming and drop-in times. Most importantly, they act on the belief that each person deserves dignity, love, and respect. If you're interested in becoming a partner in ministry by giving or volunteering, visit auroracommons.org. Contact Elizabeth Dahl
