About Us

Our Mission

With a commitment to excellence, Bethshan provides Christ-centered homes and services in the community that honor the value and dignity of adults who have intellectual disabilities.

We Are Family

To some people, we represent safety and stability. To others we represent a route to independence with support. And to many it is a place where they are respected, listened to, and honored in their choices, but to all, they find a place to call home and feel part of a family. As a Christian organization, we believe every person has God-given value and deserves to live in a safe, caring community where they can grow to their potential – to be treated with dignity.

We Are Home

Bethshan is a faith based organization that operates sixteen homes in the south suburbs of Chicago to people who have intellectual disabilities. Residents in our homes receive supervision and training from qualified, highly trained Bethshan employees. We have been providing these services with excellence since 1982, and are committed to continuing to offer an array of living environments to provide lifelong care and support.

At Bethshan, we believe every human being deserves to be cared for, treated with dignity, given the opportunity to try new things, and encouraged to reach their potential. At Bethshan, each resident discovers a home where they can safely become their best, discovering new possibilities, making new friends, and share new experiences. At Bethshan, each resident is beloved simply because they are here, because they are unique, because they are respected.

We believe every person deserves a place to belong, to know that they are truly beloved.
