Bethesda Cares

Bethesda Cares is an interfaith ministry supported by congregations in the area. It is dedicated to aiding the local homeless. It operates an office on Woodmont Avenue and is a sponsor of Bethesda House (Cordell Avenue), which provides temporary shelter for its clients. Volunteers assist in providing meals. They pick up food at several churches and restaurants for lunch, and for dinner they purchase and prepare the food and assist in serving the meal. In addition, volunteers prepare grant requests to philanthropic organizations and publish a newsletter on Bethesda Care activities.
