Keeping children safe, strengthening families, and building healthy communities since 1899

Bethany for Children & Families is a private child welfare, mental health, community education, and social services provider that has offered aid and support to children and families in western Illinois and eastern Iowa since 1899. The organization staffs a professional team of 70 social workers, licensed counselors, case managers, and educators, directed by a Board of volunteer community leaders. Offering 22 programs and services, Bethany serves over 10,000 children and families annually.

Today, the agency provides services in Scott, Clinton, Jackson, Muscatine, and Cedar counties in Iowa, and Rock Island, Henry, Mercer, Whiteside, Knox, Warren, and Henderson counties in Illinois. Bethany's service area covers over 7,050 square miles and a population of over 642,100 people, of which over 145,800 are under 18 years of age and over 28,400 are children in poverty.

Bethany's success depends upon people like you. Each dollar you give directly supports programs and services that provide critical assistance to the children and families who need it most. Please consider a monthly gift. Monthly giving helps Bethany plan for the future and provides a dependable foundation with which the agency can assist those children in the Quad City community who need it the most.

Thank you for your support!
