Our Mission

homeless-shelter-li-2a

Bethany House exists to strengthen and assist those women and children from Long Island who are deprived of the basic resources required for natural and healthy growth and development. Bethany House seeks to provide a homelike atmosphere where basic living needs are met and comprehensive services combine to encourage the head of the family to attain self - sufficiency for the family and restore their human dignity.

To achieve this end, Bethany House:

  • Employs a multi-services approach of supportive counseling, family life education and specific programs to those made vulnerable to crisis.
  • Advocates and networks with other agencies to obtain needed services and benefits for those in its care.
  • Creates opportunities for change on the individual case level, and acts to effect broader change on the systemic level when recurring social problems are presented.
  • Seeks to educate and involve the community at large in a concerted effort to prevent homelessness when possible, and to respond effectively to it when preventive efforts fail

Bethany House is committed to work to assure and protect the dignity and individual worth of each person particularly that of the women and children who have been deprived of the basic right to shelter.
