It should be noted Bethany Children’s Home recognize that our residents’ wellness and proper nutrition are related to our residents’ physical well-being, growth, development, and readiness to learn. Because of this, we want our youth to be in the best shape possible.
The Board is committed to providing a home environment that promotes wellness, nutrition, nutrition education, and physical activity. Bethany Children’s Home provides the best experience for our youth. Along with nutrition, Bethany understands in a healthy environment, children will learn about and participate in dietary and lifestyle practices that can improve overall health. Furthermore, Bethany Children’s Home will demonstrate proper nutrition for the youth.
