Mission Statement

A network of volunteers serving residents in southern Montgomery County who are in financial frisis

Bethesda Help, an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, offers immediate short-term assistance to residents of southern Montgomery County, Maryland, who are in financial crisis.

Description

Bethesda Help provides:

  • Financial assistance for rent (when there is about to be an eviction), partial or full payment of utility bills (when service is about to be cut off), and prescription medicines (when need is verified by a doctor's office and the client cannot make full or partial payment).

  • Transportation, free-of-charge, to doctor and social-service appointments for frail, elderly, or disabled individuals who cannot afford cab fare, cannot take public transportation, or who simply need extra help.

  • Emergency food deliveries to households in crisis (grocery bags containing a three-day supply of food for each member of the household).
Without volunteers, Bethesda Help cannot offer these services to our neighbors in need.
