Bethesda House is located on the South Shore of Massachusetts and its purpose is to provide safe, nurturing temporary housing for young women who find themselves homeless due to an unplanned pregnancy.  Our goal is to provide you and your child with the following:

  • A relationship with Jesus 
  • Life and parenting skills
  • Self-sufficiency in supporting yourself and your child
  • Sexual integrity
  • Responsibility and the motivation to serve to others

We will model/teach you what a HOME should be so you leave with practical knowledge/experience.  All of this will be encompassed in Biblical teaching.
