Bethesda Project operates 14 sites throughout Center City Philadelphia for individual adults experiencing homelessness. These sites range from emergency shelter to safe haven provisions to supportive housing to independent living spaces. OBP is run in conjunction with the City of Philadelphia and provides emergency shelter for 149 men and supportive services for an additional 50 on a daily basis. Individuals experiencing homelessness receive warm meals and social services, taking the first step in accessing housing in the community. Individuals who are chronically homeless and struggle with severe and persistent mental illness, serious medical conditions and/or addiction receive food, shelter and referrals to much-needed services. Bethesda Project staff reach out to those most reluctant to enter shelter with tenacious, dignified care and help them transition to housing.
Mission Statement: Bethesda Project's mission is to find and care for the abandoned poor and to be family with those who have none.
