Bethel Community Foundation (BCF), Inc. was the first CINS/FINS (Children In Need of Services/Family In Need of Services) Neighborhood Partner in the State of Florida. Since January 2004, Bethel has successfully served over 1000 youth and families. We believe our unique blend of traditional and non-traditional approaches allows us to meet families where they are.

Additionally, we offer Female Life Skills, Manhood Development, Active Parenting, Anger Management, and Employability Skills training for all students during the summer are the core elements of the services we provide.
