We Are A Net
work of Volunteers Serving Bethesda Area Residents in Financial Crisis
Bethesda Help, an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, offers immediate short-term as
sistance to residents of southern Montgomery County, Maryland, who are in financial crisis.

Bethesda Help provides:
  • Financial assistance for rent (when there is about to be an eviction), partial or full payment of utility bills (when service is about to be cut off), and prescription medicines (when need is verified by a doctor’s office and the client cannot make full or partial payment).

  • Transportation, free-of-charge, to doctor and social-service appointments for elderly or disabled individuals who cannot afford cab fare.

  • Emergency food deliveries to households in crisis (grocery bags containing a three-day supply of food for each member of the household).

    Without volunteers, Bethesda Help cannot offer these services to our neighbors in need.
