Bethany House of Northern Virginia empowers women and children escaping domestic violence by providing safe, short-term housing and trauma-informed services. 


At Bethany House, our service to others is modeled after the example, life, and ministry of Jesus.

In our service to others, we follow the commandments that Jesus holds greatest:  love God and love your neighbors, even your enemies, as yourself (Matthew 22:37-40, Matthew 5:44).

We believe that serving those in need is equivalent to serving Jesus (Matthew 25:35-40).

We believe that Jesus is the Son of God is and that He is God (John 1:1, 1 Peter 1:2, Colossians 1:15-17).

We believe that if one confesses that Jesus is Lord and believes that God raise Him from the dead, that person will be saved (Romans 10:9-10).

“I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.”

Matthew 25:36 (NLT)

“I have summoned you by name; you are mine…you are precious and honored in my sight.”

Isaiah 43:1, 43:4 (NIV)
