Bethany in Grand Rapids
Supporting kids and families in our community
We help thousands of expectant parents every year—of all ages and backgrounds—and empower them to make a plan. Only they can make the decision, but they don’t have to make it alone.
When an expectant parent decides to pursue adoption, we offer support as they seek adoptive parents for their child.
For foster families around the world opening their hearts and homes to children, we seek to provide ongoing support—every heartwarming and heartbreaking step of the way.
Imagine growing up without the stability of a permanent family. Unfortunately, that’s the reality for many children. That's why we do everything possible to ensure they have a stable, nurturing family.
Our Transitional Living Center is a specialized residential program committed to helping refugee youth adjust to their new culture and achieve independence.
Sometimes you need someone to talk with you through life’s challenges—especially through the ongoing and ever-changing pandemic. We’re here for you when you do. Bethany’s Christian counselors are clinically certified and have a proven track record in their area of expertise.
Whether you're an adoptee, birth parent, or adoptive parent, we're here for you—providing expert support built on decades of experience in the field of adoption.
Young men who are sex offenders or who have demonstrated sexually aggressive or inappropriate behaviors are granted a safe and constructive home environment in our residential treatment program.
When parents are going through a temporary crisis, we find families to care for their children. This allows parents to take essential steps toward stability.
It’s not about how much time you put in, but the impact you can make with your skills and passions. Explore our volunteer opportunities and contact your local branch to find the best fit for you.
Children around the world flee their homes due to war, violence, natural disasters, or persecution. These unaccompanied children seek refuge and a safe, comforting place to heal.
Every year, tens of thousands of refugees are resettled in the U.S., seeking safety and a chance at a new life. With your help, we surround refugees with welcome and support during one of the hardest times in their lives.
Refugees are talented, dedicated, and loyal workers. That’s why we partner with local businesses to hire adult refugees as they begin their new lives in the U.S.
As a foster parent, you’ll provide a safe and loving temporary home for unaccompanied children seeking asylum in the U.S., until they can be reunited with a family member.
Parenting isn’t easy. And when you have questions or challenges, you want to know someone understands and has your back. Parent Cafés bring you together with other parents and caregivers for encouraging, supportive conversation. Whatever you’re facing as a parent, you’re not alone.
