Bethany in Philadelphia
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.
When we are unable to find a family to adopt a child in their country of origin, we prepare a willing and ready family in the United States to adopt the child.
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.
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.
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.
Trafficking may seem like an issue that only exists elsewhere, but victims are often hidden in plain sight. And when they leave or escape, they need support from people in their community who care about their health and well-being.
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.
Refugee foster families step up to provide a home for unaccompanied minors who have often been separated from their families for years.
At Bethany, we believe healthy individuals and families are important for strong communities. When you request counseling, you’ll work one-on-one with a counselor to develop your plan for treatment.
