Serving Niagara Men, Women & Children

Bethlehem has been turning lives around for almost 30 years. 

We are the only organization in Niagara offering supportive transitional and permanent housing for men, women and their children with a focus on families who are homeless due to issues with poverty, physical disability, mental health, domestic violence and family breakdown. 

Since 1988, we have helped more than 2,000 families stabilize their lives by providing housing and support services to help them break the cycle and gain the confidence, skills and health to remain securely housed.
