Community Engagement

Bethanna is an 85-year old non-profit Christian agency devoted to meeting the needs of children and their families.   Each year, more than 1000 children are served through Bethanna’s programs. As a social services agency, Bethanna seeks to provide the highest quality system of care to children and families to ensure safety, restore emotional wellness, and build family stability.

Why Foster/ and Adoptive Families Are Needed

Each day children of all ages need a temporary foster home or permanent adoption placement.  Many of these children which Bethanna serves were subjected to physical, emotional, even sexual abuse in their young lives.  Some are healthy while others may have developmental, behavioral, or medical needs. Their families may have been torn apart by substance abuse, neglect, domestic violence, and other crises.  But all need Christ-like love, compassion, justice, and mercy.

This is where you can make a difference in a child’s life. Bethanna is committed to providing these children with the stability, warmth, and nurturing of a loving family like yours until they are reunited with their birth families or until an alternate permanent home is found for them.  Bethanna is looking for loving individuals and couples willing to open their homes as resource families for these children in need of temporary foster care or adoption. Children grow and develop to their fullest potential when they are in loving, nurturing homes.
