Our Heart is for Children

Bethany Christian Services is a global nonprofit organization that brings families together and keeps families together. Strengthening families for the well-being of children is our top priority. Our services include adoption, foster care, and pregnancy counseling. We also provide counseling to families, assist refugees and immigrants resettling in the U.S., and partner with several international countries to help keep families together. The work we do equips families to be the answer for children in need—as Christ intended.


Why We Do What We Do

God loves children and so do we. Every child deserves a loving family—that’s where children thrive best—but so many children don’t have this blessing. At Bethany, we believe a loving family is a simple, proven, lasting answer to a child’s needs.

Our Mission

Our mission is to demonstrate the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by protecting and enhancing the lives of children and families through quality social services.

In the hope that we will bring glory to God in everything we do, we focus on three core values:

  • Integrity - Make decisions that are consistent with Biblical principles.
  • Impact - Go above and beyond.
  • Innovation - Be dedicated to improvement.

A Full-Service Agency that is Fully Accredited

Bethany is reviewed by the Council of Accreditation on a regular basis to receive its reaccreditation. The accreditation process is designed to identify providers that have set high performance standards for themselves and have made a commitment to their constituents to deliver the highest quality services. COA continually recognizes Bethany Christian Services as one of these outstanding providers.

Council on Accreditation

The Council on Accreditation partners with human service organizations worldwide to improve service delivery outcomes by developing, applying, and promoting accreditation standards.

Bringing & Keeping Families Together…In Your Community and Around the World

Bethany Christian Services is located in 36 states and works in many countries around the world. All of our U.S. offices provide pregnancy counseling and adoption services. However, only certain offices provide foster care programs and Safe Families for Children™ ministries. Internationally, Bethany has been able to replicate adoption and foster care services in countries such as China and Ethiopia. We also have a sponsorship program and other programs that support children and families overseas.

Bethany envisions a world where every child has a loving family.
