Bethesda House provides a safe environment for women and children who are escaping intimate partner violence.
We empower families and individuals by providing our residents with the tools needed to engage and preserve healthy, non-abusive interpersonal relationships through intervention, prevention, and education as we aspire to end violence in our community
"a place of mercy and healing"
The name, Bethesda House, is intentional, as Bethesda means "place of mercy and healing." Such is the hope of this organization - that women who suffer from the trauma of violence will have a safe place to heal and become able to live responsibly and sustainably, without the fear of abuse, exploitation, or the power of others over them.
We believe in the dignity and equality of every human being. Therefore, all people should be valued and empowered to live free of the fear of violence in their homes. To this end, we strive to address all forms of oppression and discrimination in the Alabama Wiregrass region in order to support a safe and thriving community. This philosophy specifically informs our intention to pour out love on our residents, so that they can heal, and ultimately thrive.
