Bethesda Lutheran Communities


Bethesda Lutheran Communities is a Christian nonprofit that provides people with intellectual and developmental disabilities with home, career, education and faith resources to live full and empowered lives. As a Recognized Service Organization (RSO) of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, we are an independent service provider committed to fostering the mission and ministry of the church. 

Through the support of caring, dedicated employees, donors and volunteers, our programs and services help thousands of people: 

• Make a home for themselves 
• Live the lives they want 
• Create personal independence 
• Grow their faith 
• Connect with others 

With program locations across the United States, our goal is to help each person make choices, set goals and enrich their lives so they can live in the home they choose and access the sup-ports they desire. We help our friends realize a greater sense of independence and a closer connection to their community. We believe together, the best life is possible.
