Mission Statement

New Bethany Ministries offers hope and support to people who experience poverty, hunger, and homelessness. We believe that all people, regardless of circumstances, should be treated with dignity and care without judgment. No one who seeks help is turned away.

We continually strive to build a community of hope and support for those who seek help and for those who desire to make a difference in the Lehigh Valley. We address immediate needs such as food and basic hygiene, provide short-term housing solutions, and encourage long-term change that will lift individuals out of poverty through housing, case management, and employment assistance. We welcome dedicated staff, volunteers, and donors who recognize that they have an important role to play in building a community that can make a difference.

About New Bethany Ministries

People cannot thrive when they don’t know where they are going to get their next meal or bed to sleep in. They cannot apply for a job when they don’t have a place to shower or wash their clothes. They cannot get the documents they need to obtain employment or benefits when they don’t have a mailing address. New Bethany is a community of hope and support. We meet people where they are by offering wrap around services designed to remove barriers and assist individuals and families in reaching self-sufficiency.

We start with a meal and other street-level human services, including showers, laundry services, mailing address, and monthly access to our food pantry, and continue with housing assistance, job search support and tools, and case management.

New Bethany believes that all people, regardless of circumstances, should be treated with dignity and care without judgment. No one who seeks help is turned away. In our 37-year history, we have never closed our doors to those in need, even during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic (which saw a 30% increase in people seeking assistance) and we will be here as long as there is a need. Until then, New Bethany will continue working for economic and racial justice for all members of our community
