About Bethesda Place

Bethesda Place is a local Christian non-profit founded by Tom and Shelley Stafford in 1976, when they began taking young men with developmental disabilities to live in their country home west of Hays. Bethesda Place is currently the home of 6 talented men who have spent years living, working, playing, and praying together. The residents and staff of Bethesda Place lead a meaningful life together as they grow trees for local landscaping development, garden to nourish themselves and others, and create an inspirational living community in which “two is better than one.” Together they overcome each of their unique challenges.
