Emily Corleto and Heidi Praw
were first introduced to Beit T’Shuvah in 2005 when they attended a Gala meeting, and since that day, they have been integral members of our community. Over the past 18 years, both Emily and Heidi have served multiple times as Gala and Auction co-chairs, and have participated in numerous Beit T’Shuvah committees, including the Governance, Prevention, and Gala Committees. They both joined the Beit T’Shuvah Board of Directors in 2008, where they have served for over 15 years lending their expertise to a variety of projects and assisting in raising millions of dollars to subsidize treatment for our residents.
Emily and Heidi are deeply passionate about the work we do at Beit T’Shuvah and have been personally enriched by bearing witness to the individual transformations that occur here, as well as the deep level of healing that happens within families. Speaking about the death of her brother, who passed away at age 36, Emily says, “I wish there would have been a BTS where he could have gone for help—I truly believe he would be alive today.” Heidi, who is fortunate enough not to have been personally impacted by addiction, is equally committed to supporting Beit T’Shuvah’s mission. “I support BTS because I believe in the mission,” she says. “I am grateful to be able to help in my small way to further the success of this organization.” The impact Emily and Heidi have had on the community has been anything but small. Both Emily and Heidi have devoted endless hours in support of the life-saving work we do at Beit T’Shuvah, and we are privileged to have the opportunity to honor them at this year’s Circle of Majesty Luncheon.
