Join our monthly donor community and support a family!
The value to families is immeasurable!
Bethesda is expanding its family support to better serve families and the community. Family support at Bethesda is not paid for by government funding so we rely on donations to pay for experienced professionals to support families. To better serve the growing needs of families with children with diverse abilities, we have recently added a family support specialist to our staff team. Our dream is to make this position a long-term reality, and that’s where we need your help. Are you able to donate monthly to help cover the salary?
Do you have a friend with a child with a diverse ability? Or a family member? Or do you have a heart for supporting families in this way?
As little as $5/month
To cover the salary of a family support professional and related service expenses.
What Families Say
“Family support has been a life-saver. The hours Jayden is at summer camp is really an opportunity for me as a parent to relax a bit and do something with my other children.”
Jayden’s mom, 8 years receiving Bethesda’s family support services.
“Summer camp is so great for your child, and it’s so great for your family. And without it — we just realized — we’re just too weak to do it on our own”
Sadie’s mom, 4 years receiving Bethesda’s family support services.
“It gives Destiny that stability of friendship, because in larger groups, she just needs that extra prompting, like, knowing where’s she supposed to fit in.”
Destiny’s mom, 6 years receiving Bethesda’s family support services.
