Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Economic Development, Education, Elementary & Secondary Schools, Human Services, Literacy, Neighborhood Centers, Urban & Community Economic Development, Youth Development - Religious Leadership

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 serves as a safe haven for the children and the community of Chattanooga. Our children in the community needs a place that is filled with people who will encourage them, believe in them and show them that there is always a better way and the Bethlehem Center provides all of that. Chattanooga is so fortunate to have such a center that will help children become stronger students, future leaders and carriers of the message of Christ that they have learned at the Beth. The Beth is filled with people who know how to lift these children up and show them what can be accomplished through hard work and determination. Chattanooga is privileged to have such a place as the Bethlehem Center in our community and I am so grateful for all that they do on a daily basis!

The BETH is a shining example in Chattanooga of Christ's love and care for all. I know what a difference the tutoring makes in the lives of children served. I personally love my visits to the thrift store and the diner! Keep up the great work!

I find it interesting that the city leaders need to finance expensive studies to determine if there is a gang problem and how to address it. The Bethlehem Center has been giving some of the kids what they need for years; love, faith, hope and the knowledge of a different life. Its too bad that is not available for every child.

The Bethlehem Center in Chattanooga is amazing for gardening classes, neighborhood empowerment, Red Cross training, support of the kids, and health services. I got the most amazing health detox hydrotherapy session at the Beth and appreciate all they do and are!

I knew Beth way back when and she has always been a kind soul with good intentions. Now that we have reconnected I'm glad to see all the good work she is doing to help her community and beyond. It is not often that you meet a genuine spirit that just wants to help. I'm happy she is following her bliss and spreading it to others! :)
