About Bethel Village
Bethel Village is the Panama City Rescue Mission women’s and children’s campus, a ministry of the Panama City Rescue Mission, a privately funded 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
The campus includes:
- Recovery beds for 22 women
- Transitional beds for 10 women
- Shelter beds for 10 for women, or women with children
Bethel Village offers a five-phase substance abuse recovery program for women to recover in a supportive environment and grow in responsibility, integrity, and commitment. The recovery program is a highly successful, faith-based and transformational, 12- to 14-month program. The platform is very structured and includes completion of a Christian 12-step program, Christian discipleship studies and daily work therapy.
Students must demonstrate the ability to live successfully in a group environment and embrace Christian character and behavior development. Graduation requires completion of five different phases of the program, culminating in securing permanent employment and housing.
