Apply to Live at Bethesda House

Bethesda House was established in 2016 and is located on the South Shore of Massachusetts. Our home offers eight 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.

Living at Bethesda House
Our mission is to provide a temporary home for up to two years and offer you and your baby a safe and nurturing environment to stay in as you work toward a future of self-sufficiency.  The basis of our home is built on God’s love and how your life can be transformed through a loving relationship with Jesus.
