Bethany Children’s Home has been serving youth in the community since 1863. More than 300 youth who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned are taking back their lives each year at Bethany Children’s Home. On a 385 acre, tree-lined scenic campus in the heart of Womelsdorf, PA these young people heal from their traumas as they live under the nurturing care of house parents in a safe, family environment.
Since 1863 Bethany has helped more than 7000 children face the world with confidence and direct their own futures positively and productively. Our alumni have gone on to make positive contributions in their communities, the business world, medicine, law, education, and the arts.
Using the Sanctuary Model, we strive to provide a safe place of nurture, protection, and supportive care to aid our residents in their self-understanding, growth, and healing toward a brighter, healthier future.
