Bethesda Cares (www.bethesdacares.org) helps people suffering chronic homelessness find paths to safe, permanent housing, while also easing their lives through its Drop-In Center, daily hot meal program, clothing closet and mental health services. Bethesda Cares also works directly with landlords and utility companies to prevent low-income residents from spiraling into homelessness.
