BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Since BethanyKids is made up of separate legal entities working together in the USA, Canada and the UK, we have three national Boards of Directors. In addition, we have an International Board made up of representatives from the three national Boards. These boards are made up of people who are leaders in their own fields and who voluntarily serve as sources of inspiration, guidance and wisdom for BethanyKids.
