Apply to Live at Bethesda House

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.  In 2018, our community came together to help us renovate a large commercial building.

Complete with eight single bedrooms, a classroom, playroom, large living area and kitchen, the new Bethesda House opened in May giving mothers and their babies hope for the future.  Shopping and community access is within walking distance giving moms the independence they need to build a future for themselves and their babies.

At Bethesda House, you will work daily to gain the following:

  • A relationship with Jesus;
  • Life and parenting skills;
  • Self-sufficiency in supporting yourself and your child;
  • Sexual integrity; and
  • 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.

You and your and baby will be welcome to stay at Bethesda House for up to two years. The exact length of stay depends upon the educational plan developed.
