Bethany in Lancaster
Supporting kids and families in our community
When an expectant parent decides to pursue adoption, we offer support as they seek adoptive parents for their child.
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.
If you are an adoptive parent, adoptee, birthparent, or have legal custodianship or a formal kinship agreement, our staff is here to provide support through our post-adoption services. Working with SWAN, our services may be available at no cost for children 18 and under.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We partner with over 100 businesses in West Michigan who hire refugees within their first five years in the U.S. Our staff helps ensure their continual professional development.
Across the U.S., Bethany is welcoming Afghan refugees who have fled their country in the wake of the Taliban’s rise to power and the U.S. military’s withdrawal. We need your help.
Every mother deserves the opportunity to parent her child. ReNew helps expectant mothers
in recovery become the healthy, stable parents they want to be for their children.
If your family is experiencing neglect, family conflict, domestic abuse, substance use, or mental health problems, we welcome you into our Homebuilders program.
Bethany partners with Adagio Health to provide families curriculum about family planning and well-being for teens and young adults. Topics in the program include contraceptive choices, sexually transmitted infections, and more.
