November 15, 2017 — Two Rooms in the New Bethesda House Sponsored
Our mission and model will remain the same but the new Bethesda House– a soon-to-be purchased commercial building in Pembroke– will be able to help us serve more residents and will give moms more independence. We are seeking $125,000 to cover the expected renovation costs. Two of the eight bedrooms have been sponsored! Room 8 is being sponsored by a special couple married on 08-08-08 and the other room is being sponsored by a special lady who is passionate about the unborn… she is naming her room “Shiprhah’s Room” in the name of one of the Hebrew midwives who protected the Hebrew male babies born who were supposed to be killed. [Exodus 1:15] Six more bedrooms and three larger rooms are still available for sponsorship. Read more.

To provide a temporary home that is safe and nurturing for young mothers, either pregnant or parenting their baby.  The basis of our home will be built on God’s love and how life can be transformed through a relationship with Jesus.

While living at our “home” young mothers will be linked with educational programming so mom and baby leave with the necessary skills and knowledge to be self-sufficient.  Bethesda House will also assist mothers in accessing benefits to aid in the support of mom and baby.  Parenting through formal classes and informal teaching will be an integral part of daily life.  Basic life skills will be taught as well. We will model the love of Christ so these moms come to know His love.  All of this will be encompassed in Biblical teaching.  Bethesda House is a 501(c)3 non-profit fully run by volunteers so that we can maximize the impact of all donations.
