Most women first connect with our programs by visiting Bethany Women's Center, our drop-in day program, and entering Case Management.
Bethany Women's Center
Bethany Women's Center is a drop-in program that offers women safe respite from the streets, support for basic needs, and access to resources and opportunities to help them move out of homelessness.
Each day, 80 to 100 women receive breakfasts, lunches, and afternoon snacks; access our showers and bathrooms, laundry machines and a clothing closet; relax and rest in our lounge; and participate in a variety of activities, including arts and crafts, book groups, beauty sessions, health education presentations and more.
Bethany Women's Center also offers a Crisis Care program. Clients who have a mental health or medical emergency, need information about emergency shelters or other area resources, or who require warm winter clothing or bus tokens can work with our staff to get help with these urgent needs.
The services, support, and community acceptance a woman receives at Bethany Women’s Center can encourage her to seek additional services – such as case management, addiction counseling, or employment training – that can put her on the road to recovery and self-sufficiency.
Bethany Women's Center is open 365 days a year. Our hours of operation are 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday - Friday; 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on weekends and holidays.
Interested in learning more? Clients and staff from other agencies are encouraged to attend our Welcome Sessions, offered every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday at 9:15 a.m. in Bethany Women's Center. Starting September 2, 2015 welcome sessions will be given Monday-Friday at 9:15am in the Bethany TV Room. During the Welcome Sessions we give an overview of our programs and a brief tour. Welcome Sessions are not required for client participation in our services.
