Aimee Prince

Director of Development | Aimee@bethlehemhouse.net
 I am proud to have been born and raised in Conway. I am fortunate to have my family history all around me. I am married to Jeff, a teacher and coach in the Conway Public Schools. I have two children. My oldest is a third generation Wampus Cat and my youngest is a Wampus Cat in training. We bleed blue at our house. I attended CBC and then transferred to UCA where I studied special education. I am a graduate of the 2004 Faulkner County Leadership Class and served for many years on their board as the director of the Youth Leadership Program. I had worked in the newspaper industry for 10 years when Hurricane Katrina hit. It was then I began volunteering for the City of Conway to host those who were left without homes or much hope. It was moving to see how a community came together to help people they didn’t even know. It was shortly after that I began work at United Way of Central Arkansas. It’s there, I fell in love with Bethlehem House and their work. I have been privileged to have been a member in the Conway Noon Lions Club, where I served as President in 2006 and received the first Herb Lawrence award and the Melvin Jones award. I have also served in the Conway Noon Optimist Club . I have served on a variety of boards including CASA, American Heart Association, and Consumer Family Counseling.  I currently serve on the board for Independent Living Services. I am a member of the Conway Noon Rotary Club, the work they have done in eradicating polio in the world is amazing. We are this close. Rotary is also working hard to provide clean water to the world. Billions of people lack access to adequate sanitation facilities. Our projects give communities the ability to have sustainable clean water. I am the current Vice President of the Conway Regional Women’s Council and absolutely love working with these ladies to advocate and promote women’s health education and provide support for Conway Regional Health System. I love volunteering with my church by serving on their Women Ministry Team. I am certain that all of the areas that I have been blessed to serve in will help me with the position I have taken at Bethlehem House. I feel God has prepared me for this job by providing me with the opportunities above and I’m looking forward to getting started.

People always ask me how I ended up working at a homeless shelter. When I tell them I was 16 when I decided to do this type of work, they are shocked. God placed this desire in my heart at a very young age and I am so thankful I followed His plan for my life. I went to college at Williams Baptist and graduated with a B.A. in Theology in 2005. I began working at Bethlehem House in 2006 and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I married Scott Moran July 30, 2011. That day, I gained a beautiful step-son, Ben. Like most 8 year olds, he keeps us busy with football and baseball. Scott and I welcomed Owen into our lives July 2, 2013. He has been a wonderful blessing for our family. I love watching him grow and learn new things every day. Being a mom is my favorite job.

Natalie Rader

Resident Advocate | natalie@bethlehemhouse.net
Natalie’s life story is now coming full circle in being a part of Bethlehem House.  She obtained her Christian Counseling degree at Central Baptist College in 2005, and at the time, she had no idea why. God was only getting started.  For 9 years, Natalie was trying to fill the God-size hole in her heart with every worldly dream possible.  On April 5, 2014, she finally figured out that no drink or pill or dream destination will ever fill that vacancy that only He can fill.  She then spent the next 4 months in an inpatient rehab facility.  When she came home, she began to start training for leadership in Celebrate Recovery at Onechurch, where she now serves as the Women’s Chemical Dependency Leader.  Looking back, she remembers telling her mom that she would never speak to anyone in therapy unless they were an addict as well.  Even though she graduated with her degree 11 years ago, God had a plan all along.  He is taking her mess, where He means it for good, and is turning it into His Message, at the Bethlehem House.
