Mission: We are God's people, empowering inner-city youth and families to lead responsible lives by providing discipleship, education and leadership development. Vision: The Bethlehem Center's vision is to transform the Alton Park community and beyond into literate, spiritually enriched and economically self-sufficient neighborhoods, that are safe and enjoyable for all residents to live, work and play.

Programs: The Beth's program strategy focuses on four, key areas: Spiritual Growth, Education / Literacy, Leadership Development & Economic Empowerment. Everything the Bethlehem Center does includes Spiritual Growth and normally one or both of the other two focus areas. But why these three areas of focus?- Spiritual growth is essential to the inner transformation of hearts and people. - Education replaces the hopelessness and fear embodied in ignorance with the empowering hope and courage arising from knowledge. - Economic empowerment transforms people and families from a state of dependency and consumption to a state of self-sufficiency and production.

The Bethlehem Center is like a second home to me. Growing up, I didn't have many positive influences in my life but, when I started the Bethlehem Center all that changed. The Bethlehem center is a great place for kids and teenagers. Going to the Bethlehem Center is life changing experience. The best thing about the Bethlehem Center is that JESUS IS FIRST . I wouldn't change anything about the Bethlehem Center because in my eyes and in my heart I truly feel that the Bethlehem Center is perfect.

As part of a class I was enrolled in at UTC, was required to volunteer at The Bethlehem Center. I volunteered for 2 months and loved it. The Beth is doing a fantastic job of bettering their community. The staff went out of their way to help me, you can tell they really invest in every person who comes through the door. This organization is an asset to the Alton Park area as well as the entire city of Chattanooga.
