I worked as a DSP at Easthaven in WI and had a wonderful experience. ! On a daily basis I could see the impact we had on our clients by taking the time to care for them and give them the attention they need and deserve. The staff that I worked with were enjoyable! I really felt like I made a difference and it made a difference in me as well. I look forward to establishing this type of needed work in the foreign country of Malawi, Africa !

I'm so sorry to hear about MrsBills story and yet SOOO impressed with how she rated Bethesda. I am glad to know a Christian ex-employee has such a great attitude and that both he and his wife would rate Bethesda so high. Being an organization of several thousand employees, it's not easy to have such high ratings unless the org is that great at their focused business. I have heard great things. Your honest review is telling. You say you would volunteer there again. My prayers are with you and your husband in finding a new job. AND - I am going to support Bethesda in the future.

My husband William Corley worked for Bethesda for two years and they fired him yesterday. A couple of his co-workers ganged up on him and told the boss he called one of the clients a filthy name. My husband is a Christian and doesn't talk that way. He loved his job and the clients loved him. I don't feel my husband got justice. This is Evergreen in Visalia, Ca

I toured some neighborhood homes where Bethesda's people lived. WOW - they are living truly meaningful lives. I see Bethesda's people come to my church - St. Mark's, and worship so cheerfully. SO, I helped initiate & organize Luther Prep high school students to volunteer at the Watertown Bethesda Thrift store so that more people could impact the lives of people with disabilities. The students LOVE making a difference and working on Saturdays. I loved working with Bethesda and Luther Prep to form that partnership. EVERYONE wins - but mostly: people with disabilities that Bethesda serves!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing their neighborhood group homes, then seeing several of their Bethesda Thrift stores - whose profits benefit the people served by Bethesda - where the volunteers truly let their light shine by their passionate desire to help people with disabilities! I also experienced the professional staff in Bethesda's Corporate office working with a volunteer and High School students to put together a win-win-win (stores, students, people with disabilities) situation!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Want a monthly e-newsletter that told me what was happening in the Thrift Stores, with their Finanicial situation so I could donate online, and with their Religious Life services - it's so cool that they are reaching out with the Gospel Message to people all over the WORLD that have disabilities.
