Hi, friends! Hawthorn Hill is getting very low on toilet paper, paper towels and baby wipes. Anything you can do to help us with these essential needs is much appreciated! We’ll be here and they can be dropped off anytime. Thanks to all of you who help support our mission to provide services to help families achieve economic self-sufficiency. We can’t do it without you! Have a safe and happy holiday! ... See MoreSee Less

Hawthorn Hill and Bidwell Riverside Center attended the annual Iowa Conference of the United Methodist Church this week. It was wonderful visiting with so many of our dedicated volunteers as they shared stories of how their work at our sites has helped their own congregations and communities as well.
One of those wonderful volunteers, board member and Rev. Martha Ward, graciously signed copies of her recently-published book, “Holy Moments: When Life and Faith Intersect” and donated all the proceeds to BRC/HH. She and her husband, Bob, spent time greeting visitors at our booth. We are so fortunate to have such amazing statewide support and cannot thank our volunteers enough. THANK YOU! ... See MoreSee Less
