The Bethesda Beacon

The Bethesda Beacon

Bethesda Project’s new initiative to make services more accessible to highly vulnerable individuals includes entry-level programs at five locations. Chronically homeless men and women who struggle with severe mental illness and/or addiction receive food, shelter and referrals to social services. Bethesda Project staff reach out to shelter-resistant individuals with tenacious, dignified care and help them transition to housing.
