She worked for a diverse branch of organizations, including Wells Fargo, Parkside Credit Union, and the VFW over 15 years.  Bethany is the mother of two boys and is no stranger to life’s challenges. She was an unaccompanied youth at the age of 14. Couch surfing was just a way of life. With the guidance of a few caring adults, she was able to get her life on track and overcame many obstacles. This fuels her passion to help struggling youth and their families.

“IYS has made the difference in so many lives, including my own. I knew this is where God wanted me, paying forward kindness and hope. I am living proof that when you surrender to God and His will, the sky is the limit.”

Taylor Hampton

Nicholas Heneisen
Financial Director
(541) 591-4863
Nick moved with his family from rural Georgia to Oregon in January of 2022. Years of battling severe depression had led him to the realization that he needed to get away from his situation and forge a new start elsewhere. He arrived in Klamath Falls and immediately began working to ensure that he and his children’s lives would be better off here than where they came from. In the process, his family received help from a variety of social programs including IYS, who offered him a job shortly thereafter. He got his start in Exodus House before becoming manager of the IYS Work to Learn program. Previously, Nick has had experience in various positions within the healthcare field as well as office administration, data analysis, and retail. Outside of work, he is a hobbyist blacksmith and enjoys hiking and playing video games with his family.
