We focus our work in three key areas, because nurturing the potential of kids, helping people live healthier, and supporting our neighbors are fundamental to strengthening communities.

Bethlehem Branch

Our mission is to be the Greater Bethlehem Area’s community leader in providing the services to enhance family life, healthy lifestyles and to help our youth develop leadership qualities through values based on Christian principles.


Membership is open to all people without regard to race, creed, color, religion, national origin, age, disability or gender.
