Co-Founder/Director of Bethesda House

Bethesda House was established in 2016 and is located on the South Shore of Massachusetts. Our home offers 8 mothers a safe place to stay, where you will share a single room with your child. We will link you with an educational plan so when you leave, you have the necessary skills and knowledge to be self-sufficient. We will help you work out all the details in order to make this possible, from accessing benefits, to child care and transportation, to financial aid. We also teach parenting and life skills to help you be the best mom you can be. Best of all, we provide you with the love and support you need as a new mother.  

Mothers interested in living at Bethesda House are invited to complete our simple online application. Or, call or text 781-361-2418.

Our Mission

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

Our Model

While living at our “home” young mothers are linked with educational programming so mom and baby leave with the necessary skills and knowledge to be self-sufficient.  Bethesda House also assists mothers in accessing benefits to aid in the support of mom and baby.  Parenting through formal classes and informal teaching are an integral part of daily life.  Basic life skills are taught as well. We model the love of Christ so these moms come to know His love.  All of this is 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.

Grounded in Faith. Transforming Lives. Building Hope. Bethesda House.
