Programs: We offer opportunities for individuals to serve and spend time in the communities in which they live. Many individuals supported by Bethesda volunteer at non-profit organizations, sell food at farmers markets or spend time at nursing homes visiting with residents. Individuals also enjoy attending festivals and concerts. Bethesda group homes are set in the community, offering individuals the opportunity to enjoy everyday life. 


We also offer vocational training and Day Services programs to people who are supported in our own homes, those who live with family or those served by other providers. Individual's abilities and preferences determine the activities in which they participate. In some cases, jobs are discovered through the newspaper or arranged by case managers. Then, individuals are matched to positions through a process that determines their skills and interests. Some have Bethesda job coaches, assisting the employee and employer, others work without assistance. 

Mission:
To enhance the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities through services that share the good news of Jesus Christ.
Results:
We have expanded to have 290 neighborhood homes in 13 states and serve over 2000 individuals with various programs that carry out our mission of empowering individuals with disabilities.
