The Betamarsh Story
Founder, Doctor Betty Bedard Bidwell, understood that in order to generate a safe haven for each resident, it was essential to create a therapeutic milieu away from the city pressures and at a place that was rural for a more peaceful environment. In the rural settings, the residents have the opportunity to care for animals; creating an environment of unconditional love and acceptance.
Betamarsh Incorporated provides stable, therapeutic residential and foster care environments, which take into consideration the individual needs of each youth. Residents are provided with Individualized Therapeutic Programs tailored to address emotional, behavioral, educational and social difficulties. Services include day-to-day life skills, individual and group support, counselling, educational and familial support. Betamarsh Incorporated provides an environment that empowers and promotes change and motivation. The environment is one that includes families, neighbourhoods, schools and the community. Each resident will have a sense of possibility and will feel that they are capable of managing the different life experiences confidently and productively.
