Bethany is the Hub Center for social service connections. We reach out to our neighborhood with open arms and are a family to those who are lonely, unloved and misunderstood. We do our best to empower our low income families through various enrichment classes so that they may find jobs and fulfillment.
The Bethany Outreach Center is a volunteer driven Christian organization, rooted in Erie’s east side, reaching out to ALL people who need a hand up and hope for life change. Our broad based ministries address the material, vocational and spiritual needs for people on the edge.
Bethany Outreach, in The Neighborhood Partnership Center at 254 East Tenth Street, reaches out to those who have no hope and are living on the edge in downtown Erie which is in the area of highest poverty.
