Bethesda Family Services Foundation is committed to addressing the relational and emotional needs of troubled individuals and families throughout our nation. Our unique strategies and comprehensive approach transform lives and produce significant, objective and measurable outcomes. Our approach provides the answer to helping agencies and organizations achieve their most important goals - positive outcomes, successful reentry, and changed lives. Our strategy for intervention is client and family centered, individualized, community focused, and cost effective.
Programs in and of themselves do not change lives; at best, they merely control behavior. In order to change a life you must change the heart. At Bethesda, we are not satisfied with simply controlling behavior. Our focus is to identify the root source of pain and negative behavior that are presenting in our clientele in order to help them free their emotions from the rage that controls them. The philosophical basis of our work is emotional healing and family reconciliation. All of our efforts are structured in such a way as to indentify the most important needs of the client and family, and provide them with the necessary tools and natural supports to actually meet these needs.
It is because of our unique and powerful Relational Healing model that we were named "Promising Program" by the University of Utah, Department of Health Promotion & Education, and the U.S. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
