Programs for Children, Teens and Families

Today’s families are under attack more than ever before. Thanks to Bethel Bible Village, they do not have to walk through tough challenges alone. Bethel Bible Village offers Christ-centered programs, ranging from a weekend retreat to full-time residential care:


Back on Track — Help for Boys with Emotional and Behavioral Challenges

The Back on Track program provides residential care for boys ages 14-17 who have difficulty managing emotions and behavior. The program is designed for youth exhibiting some delinquency, including runaways and those with out-of-control, defiant or minor criminal behavior, such as vandalism, curfew violation, truancy, or theft.

Children in Crisis: Life Steps Program for Girls and Boys 5-17

The Life Steps program provides on-campus living for girls and boys age 5-17, when:

  • A youth’s behavioral or emotional issues have become too difficult for a family or guardian to handle, or
  • Parental addiction, abuse or neglect, or death of a parent leave a child with no one able to care for them, or
  • A legal guardian, often a grandparent, has a health issue or other challenge that leaves them unable to care for children

Children are supervised by House Parents who live in the homes and provide care, structure, supervision, guidance and accountability.

Transitional Housing for young women 18 – 21

Not every teen is ready to live on their own when they turn 18. Adulting is hard! This program offers young women shared housing on our campus with low-cost rent. Candidates must be working and attending college or a trade program, or plan to do so within the next few month of admission.

This program includes financial, life skills and spiritual guidance. Admission is limited to single women or a single women with a small child.

Through these Christ-focused programs, our houseparents, counselors, social workers and teachers help children reach their God-given potential. We help families reunite or remain together, whenever possible. Unlike foster care, parents or legal guardians do not have to turn custody of the children over to the state when their children are cared for at Bethel. The family maintains custody, and Bethel works directly with the court system to ensure a smooth transition.
