Little Wings of Hope

One of the greatest things about young kids is we have faith and hope and so much optimism. If everyone kept that childlike quality about them...this world would be so much more beautiful.

Bethany's Story

April 12, 1991 – December 17, 2009

Faith. Hope. Optimism. Bethany didn’t just talk about these qualities – she embodied them. More than anything, Bethany wanted to live her life to the fullest. She fought valiantly to grow smarter and stronger with each new day so that she could help herself and others in the battle against addiction. Bethany had a knack for seeing the beauty, goodness and potential in people whose addictive behaviors had left others judging them to be "beyond hope." In Bethany’s eyes, there was always hope as long as a person was still trying. Bethany never gave up on her own recovery and had faith that others could – and would – beat their addictions long as the right support was in place.

Bethany believed that treatment services should be available to everyone struggling with drug or alcohol abuse. In fact, her own life was cut short just hours before she would have entered a treatment program that she voluntarily contacted with the highest of hopes.

In the wake of her tragic death, Bethany’s parents founded Little Wings of Hope , a non-profit organization that provides financial and other resources for young adults from Western Pennsylvania who need help covering the costs of substance abuse treatment. Through fundraising events and donations to The Bethany R. Granata Endowed Scholarship, Little Wings of Hope aims to honor Bethany’s memory by offering financial relief to those seeking quality intervention services at Caron Treatment Centers.
