Family changes everything

We believe every child deserves to be loved, connected, and empowered through family. Bethany is a global nonprofit that supports children and families with world-class social services, all designed to help families thrive.

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 fully accredited organization

Bethany is reviewed by the Council of Accreditation on a regular basis 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.

I'm telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.

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.

Financial accountability

We value every partnership and are committed to financial transparency.

Origin Story

150 million reasons to help.

Today, 150 million kids don't have a permanent home. To us, that's unacceptable.

Together, we can change the world through family.
