Bethesda Project

Since 1979, Bethesda Project has been providing emergency shelter, housing and supportive services for thousands of individuals experiencing homelessness in Philadelphia. Across its 14 locations, Bethesda Project offers a home and safe environment where guests and residents can stabilize and regain their dignity and self-worth. 40 years later, Bethesda Project remains committed to its initial calling — to find and care for the abandoned poor and to be family with those who have none.
