Message from the CEO


Bethany was founded in Geelong in 1868 by members of the Geelong community who had a vision for a more inclusive society. We are proud to continue this legacy and today our vision is Opportunity for all. Bethany aspires to a society where everyone is valued and enjoys the opportunity to achieve their goals and aspirations.

Bethany is a vibrant community service organisation that engages with children, families, couples, individuals and the broader community to:

• help build better family and couple relationships

• support the education, wellbeing and safety of children

• support parents

• support victims of family violence and change perpetrator behaviour

• assist people who are homeless or at risk

• help people access training and employment

• assist people experiencing financial stress and provide material aid

• help those effected by problem gambling and other addictions

• advocate on issues of social importance

We greatly value the support of the community in helping us achieve our aims. Please get in touch if you would like to support our work, collaborate with us or join our team. We would love to hear from you.
