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.
Our primary goal through our Center for Refugee Healing Torture and Trauma is to empower you to regain the physical, psychological, and social wholeness you deserve.
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.
During their first six months in the U.S., we provide refugee families with a vast array of support. Our goal is to provide a safe new community where refugees can thrive.
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.
As a transitional 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.
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.
