What They Do


Bethany Albania works to equip local families to provide loving homes, so children can thrive. Their programs include:

  • Family Preservation and Empowerment: Access to life’s essentials makes a big difference for struggling families. Bethany helps families gain access to nutritious food, health care, and assistance with school fees. They equip families with vocational skills to become stronger and self-sufficient. They also provide counseling and health services for pregnant women, so they can keep their families together.
  • Foster Care : When a child isn’t able to remain with their family, Bethany helps open the door to a safe, stable home. They partner with local churches, communities, and governments to identify, train, and support foster families to be the answer for children in need. The first children they served in Albania were the very first in the country's history.
