Bethany Cares, Inc.

Bethany Cares, Inc (BCI) is a nonprofit community development organization initiated through Bethany Baptist Church in March of 2001.

Spearheaded by Dr. M. William Howard, former pastor of Bethany, BCI was founded shortly after Dr. Howard's tenure began at the church. As a community development corporation, BCI was created to advance the social, economic and physical well being of individuals living in the vicinity of Bethany Baptist Church, the Newark community at large, and beyond. BCI enhances the church’s outreach capacity by serving families and young people from all walks of life. 

OUR MISSION
