About Us


We are a Christian organization that provides homes for people with developmental disabilities across the country. We create connections that support people on their journey to live the best life possible.

We help people make a home for themselves

Those we support live their lives as they choose in an environment where they learn, grow and connect.

We help people live the lives they want

Bethesda helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities connect with their communities. Through these connections, the people we support are empowered to make choices that grow into a greater independence that enables them to continue their journey to live the best life possible.

Bethesda is committed to enabling the people we support grow their faith, while discovering welcoming, fully-inclusive congregational communities where they can connect with others.
