Bethany Christian Services Launches Podcast Investigating Impact of COVID-19 on Children and Families

May 14, 2020

Bethany Christian Services launched Behind the Front Lines, a new podcast featuring real and honest conversations with Bethany employees serving children and families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Each episode explores the realities of the most vulnerable people in our communities at a time when their world—like so many other’s—has been turned upside down.

These intimate conversations shine a light on the heroes working directly with kids in foster care, resettled refugees, women facing unexpected pregnancies, unaccompanied minors, and other vulnerable populations in the U.S. and around the world. Their stories will educate and inspire as we all navigate COVID-19. The goal of the podcast is to spread hope in the face of this crisis by sharing the true stories of healing, joy and strength amidst crisis.

“So many of us are expressing gratitude for workers on the front lines of the global coronavirus crisis, but it’s difficult for outsiders to fully understand what their experience is like or how, as a community, we can rally behind them with support,” said Chris Palusky, President & CEO of Bethany Christian Services. “Behind the Front Lines is an opportunity for listeners to learn how COVID-19 is causing additional challenges and stressors for vulnerable populations, and it empowers anyone who wants to help with practical steps to support their neighbors who are struggling the most.”

Behind the Front Lines is a limited series available on Apple Podcasts, BuzzSprout, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, and Tune In.
