Bethesda Project is a local organization addressing homelessness in Philadelphia. We have 14 different locations ranging from emergency shelter to permanent supportive housing, serving over 1,500 men and women every year. While we have suspended on-site volunteering, there are still ways to help out! This includes:
Holding a supply drive for high need items such as cleaning supplies, canned food, and toilet paper
Becoming a Pen Pal for one of our guests and residents through mail or video calls
Host an online fundraiser to ensure adequate resources for Bethesda Project to deliver its mission
Sponsor a meal by ordering delivery from a local restaurant
Resident Wellness: making cards or decorations for one of our sites to help cheer up guests and residents who may be feeling anxious
Creating individual activity kits for guests and residents with solo activities (such as puzzles, word searches, playing cards, books, etc.), preferably with individually wrapped snacks and hand sanitizers
Donations can be mailed or accepted Monday - Friday 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. Please note that we are unable to pick up donations.

About Bethesda Project
1630 South Street, Philadelphia, PA 19146, US
The mission of Bethesda Project is to find and care for the abandoned poor and to be family with those who have none. This involves operating a continuum of care throughout Center City Philadelphia utilizing a Housing First approach that minimizes barriers to access and allows each individual to take their own journey of healing at one's own pace.
Bethesda Project began in 1979 when Reverend Domenic Rossi and members of his prayer group from Daylesford Abbey in Paoli, Pennsylvania, reached out to a group of women experiencing homelessness in Center City, Philadelphia. Committed to caring for the women as they would members of their own families, the group rented an apartment at 12th and Sansom Streets. The women had a new home there, and the prayer group provided companionship to help them cope with mental illness. Now, more than 40 years since our beginning, Bethesda Project remains committed to our initial calling -- to find and care for the abandoned poor and to be family with those who have none. Bethesda Project serves more than 1,500 homeless and formerly homeless men and women each year at 14 sites throughout Philadelphia. This includes emergency shelter, permanent housing, and supportive services. Learn more at www.bethesdaproject.org/approach.
