Bethesda Project Mission
To find and care for the abandoned poor and to be family to those who have none.
Bethesda Project Summary
Bethesda Project operates 14 sites in Center City Philadelphia which provide emergency shelter, permanent housing, and supportive services to men and women experiencing homelessness so they can stabilize and regain dignity and self-worth. Bethesda Project serves 2,000 individuals experiencing homelessness each year.
Bethesda Project's Approach
Bethesda Project operates a continuum of care throughout Center City Philadelphia utilizing a Housing First approach that minimizes barriers to access and allows each individual to take his or her own journey of healing at one's own pace. As an Equal Housing Opportunity provider, Bethesda Project does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status, and/or disability.
Each guest and resident completes an Individualized Care Plan with his or her own case manager, which allows them to identify goals they wish to achieve. With the Care Plan in place, case managers and engagement specialists connect guests and residents to services in the community that assist in achieving their goals.
The overall goal of Bethesda Project's case management services is to assist its guests and residents in becoming more stably housed and increase their overall independence.
