About us

Bethlehem Haven helps women find their way again.


Provide a continuum of care for homeless women that leads toward self-sufficiency.


To end homelessness through collaboration with the community and the people we serve.


Thirty years ago, Rev. Peter Weaver of Smithfield United Church of Christ in Downtown Pittsburgh made a decision that changed the lives of thousands of women.


While Bethlehem Haven still relies heavily on public subsidies, we have diversified our funding streams in order to be more sustainable.

Your gift makes a real impact in the lives of so many women.
