Education & Group Support

Women’s/Men's Group (on hold until June 2023)

  • Free and open to the public every Thursday from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM
  • Every week women meet in our hospitality center to receive support and counseling in a safe and confidential space. The group is facilitated by professionals from Bethesda House, YWCA, and Sexual Assault Support at Planned Parenthood.


  • In partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extension, Bethesda House offers an on-going, six-week nutrition program. Participants learn about meal planning, nutritional information, budgeting skills, and the benefits of healthy eating habits.


  • As a critical step toward long-term employment, guests and residents of Bethesda House can sign up for free GED tutoring and classes. Volunteers and agency staff assist with test preparation and job searches.
