Bethany House of Northern Virginia is a Christian ministry located in Fairfax County, Virginia, providing emergency shelter and support services to women and children escaping domestic violence. We provide women with safe, restorative care while giving them the support and resources they need to transition into independent lives free from abuse. BHNV is funded by grants and donations from businesses, charitable foundations, churches, organizations, and individual community members.


The mission of Bethany House of Northern Virginia is to provide a safe place of healing for women and children who have experienced domestic violence. While providing confidential, secure shelter, counseling, life-skills training, and transition support, we share the knowledge and love of Christ - the only true "safe place" and provider of every need.


We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and faith in his death and resurrection is the only way to eternal salvation. As revealed by God through His Sacred Word, we believe that every man, woman, and child who enters through our doors is worthy of love, hope, dignity, care, and mercy. We believe all people are precious in the sight of God and that He has a special plan for their lives.
