Welcome to Bethany House
Domestic violence destroys lives. There is no easy escape, but there is hope.
Bethany House provides the shelter and resources Northwest Ohio area victims and their children need to safely rebuild their lives in the wake of an abusive relationship.
While most homeless shelters offer limited, short-term stays, Bethany House is the only area organization to offer long-term, apartment style transitional shelter, combined with emotional, spiritual and financial support. We’re also different because we tailor our programs to the unique situation of each individual.
Each adult victim and every child who enters the safety of Bethany House holds a special place in our hearts.
Bethany House is a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania, Ohio and is member of Sylvania Franciscan Health system. Sylvania Franciscan Health provides vital healthcare services to communities in Ohio, Kentucky and Texas. With over 6,300 employees and growing, this tightly associated network of hospitals, ambulatory care centers, independent senior housing, assisted living facilities, rehabilitation centers and human service agencies are trusted by thousands of patients and respected leaders in the communities they serve.
