Anyone who enters! However, Bethesda House's role in the continuum of care provided by multiple local agencies is to reach out and care for the chronically homeless, disabled adults in our community. Many services are geared towards the unique needs of this group and focus on housing as the first step in the process rather than the end result. This Housing-First approach is a proven best practice for successfully assisting chronically homeless persons to leave the streets and regain their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Families! Bethesda House assists many families and children through its Food Pantry, Community Meal and Clothing Room programs.
