Providing Help. Creating Hope. Serving All.
Catholic Charities Diocese of Venice, Inc. provides two programs, Bethesda House and Casa San Jose, that offer a full range of services for people living with HIV/AIDS.
The number of people affected by HIV continues to escalate, however, individuals and families often receive little community support. As a result, they try to remain anonymous so they are not further victimized by the stigma connected with the illness.
Bethesda House and Casa San Jose offer a safe place, where people diagnosed with HIV/AIDS can receive care and acceptance. The programs provide a substitute home and family… so even the homeless have a place where they “belong.”
Bethesda House and Casa San Jose provide services with love, compassion, dignity, and respect to help clients live healthy, more satisfying, and independent lives.
Casa San Jose
Casa San of Jose of Catholic Charities provides permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless men affected by HIV/AIDS. Facilities include eight one-bedroom apartments with appliances where residents work with Catholic Charities staff to maximize their quality of life. Residents of Casa San Jose also have access to the services available at Bethesda House.
Bethesda House welcomes volunteers. Volunteers are needed for assistance with the food nutritional center, maintenance, fundraising, and administration. Please consider giving your time to this worthy program.
We always need non-perishable items for the food nutritional center:
- Canned vegetables
- Pork and beans
- Tomato products
- Canned meats
