Rating: 4.87 stars   45 reviews

Issues: Children & Youth, Education, Human Services, Economic Development

Location: 200 W. 38th St. Chattanooga TN 37410 USA

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.

I am a parent of children that participated in the summer program.The program has impacted my children in a positive way, and I love the fact that they continued to instill good christian morals and values in them. This program was well structured, organized, and continued to build on their educational needs to prepare them for the upcoming school year. I will recommend this program to family and friends to enroll their children in this program, as I have already been bragging to others about this program and how it has been a blessing to me and my children.

I'm a student worker here at The Bethlehem Center. I've been working here since last summer and I've enjoyed working with and helping the students. Mr. Jennings Mr. Banks , Ms. Tallman, Mr. Meredith , etc. have inspired me to make the Bethlehem a happy play for the kids to be and from what I've been seeing they enjoy it . I'd love to be here at The Bethlehem Center for many more years and watch the kids grow up and live right and be happy. Thank you Bethlehem center for all your help !!!

There are a lot of really cool kids at the Beth and they are really nice. The Beth helps with all your school needs. They also care about who you can't be around and what you shouldn't do.
