Located in Womelsdorf, PA, Bethany Children's Home is a United Church of Christ-affiliated residential center for abused and neglected youth. Bethany provides therapeutic, spiritual, and cultural services including psychological treatment, drug and alcohol services, alternative education, community service, and life-skills training. Each holiday season, Salem Church collects much needed gifts and delivers them to the children.
