Local Partners

We’re committed to making a difference in our community through relationships and partnerships with other organizations working for change in the Seattle area.  Through this process we not only make a difference, but we are also changed ourselves.  Here are two of the local organizations we currently partner with:



Aurora Commons


YouthWise is dedicated to developing Christ-followers by working in collaboration with local organizations and schools, and by spending time with kids on a consistent basis. YouthWise currently focuses on elementary, middle school, and high school students in the Northwest area of Seattle and offers new leaders free housing, allowing them to live and learn together in community and to work full-time with youth in the neighborhood.  YouthWise was started by one of Bethany's own in 2003, and is now one of our partners as they seek to reach local urban youth for Christ. Contact: Greg Ingle


The Aurora Commons

The Aurora Commons provides a safe place of hospitality along Aurora Avenue.  They seek to grow the relational capacity within the neighborhood so that, as they care for one another, they may share space, resources and the fullness of life.  Bethany partners with The Aurora Commons through the weekly Aurora Medical Clinic.
