Not a shelter, but a home.
Family life is the basic unit of our society. There is a great need to heal our culture and strengthen the family structure in America. Bethlehem House has identified respect for all life – born and unborn – as the crucial issue our community must address.
We know every person has a right to life, and a right to a life; that is, a right to responsible parenting with loving care, education, and encouraging support. We work to compassionately and zealously launch lives on the upward path of responsibility, growth, and community spirit.
Bethlehem House is a place where each woman is shown how to love herself, and helped to find and develop her own unique talents so that upon departing she will be on a path to make the contribution to the world God has planned for her and her child.
Bethlehem House – Empowering Women from Surviving to Thriving
Uphold the dignity of the human person
We know that each person is unique, important and deserving of life, unconditional love and respect from the moment of conception to natural death. It is our commitment to exemplify our knowledge of the intrinsic value of human life in all facets of our programs and services.
Support and strengthen family and community
We understand the importance of exemplifying what a healthy family and community looks like, feels like, and functions like. Family is the central social institution and good parenting helps sustain life, guides morality and informs healthy decision making.
Foster an environment of mercy and hope
It is our responsibility to demonstrate compassion to the most vulnerable population, and to instill hope in those we serve. We strive to cultivate a sense of solidarity in our greater community by identifying and addressing poverties of our culture.
Our Family-Centered Residential Care setting provides a place of hope and empowerment for women, pregnant and in crisis, to choose life for themselves and their unborn children.
Guided by our Catholic faith, and in conjunction with multiple community partners, Bethlehem House provides women, regardless of their faith preference, with residential and aftercare pathways for attaining quality pre and post-natal care, essential parenting skills, and economic security through education and employment.
