Bethesda Thrift Store - Appleton

Who We Are

Funds raised at our thrift stores support these services

We provide a variety of support services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Camps We offer both day and residential camps. Camps are located in Colorado, Indiana, Wisconsin and Texas.

Case Management Case managers help people with disabilities and their families locate and access community services, such as medical, dental, education and in-home supports. This is offered in some regions independent of Bethesda's support services.

  • Share the Good News of Jesus Christ
