The challenges people face today call us to go further than ever. Our mission is to stand up for vulnerable children, refugees, and families around the world, because family holds an incredible power to connect us, lift us up, and transform lives.
We are a global nonprofit—in 30 U.S. states and eight countries—dedicated to helping families thrive.
Bethany demonstrates the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by protecting children, empowering youth, and strengthening families through quality social services.
Discover the 5 values that drive our daily work
At Bethany Christian Services, our culture is driven by five core values. We are motivated by our faith. We support one another. We champion justice. We pursue excellence.

We are a fully accredited organization
Bethany is regularly reviewed by the Council of Accreditation to receive its reaccreditation. The accreditation process is designed to identify providers that have set high performance standards for themselves and have made a commitment to their constituents to deliver the highest quality services. COA continually recognizes Bethany Christian Services as one of these outstanding providers.
The Council on Accreditation partners with human service organizations worldwide to improve service delivery outcomes by developing, applying, and promoting accreditation standards.
Excellence in Giving is a philanthropic advisory firm designed to help donors make confident philanthropic decisions, maximize their impact, and increase the joy that comes from giving.
Our actions are inspired by faith
For more than 75 years, our faith has inspired us to serve children close to home and around the world.
Why do we do this work?
Because there's a sobering gap between the way God sees people and the way the world sees people. Until everyone sees people the same way God does, until every person is loved, connected, and empowered, people need to stand up, speak out, and advocate, loudly and courageously.
So that’s what we do. Our core beliefs are simple: We love God and we love people.
140 million reasons to help.
Today, 140 million kids don't have a permanent home. To us, that's unacceptable.
Together, we can change the world through family.
