Located in Cincinnati, Ohio, El Bethel Transition Home strives to break generational cycles of abuse and addiction by offering a safe and stable place to call home—
a home rooted in the love of Jesus Christ.
Executive Director, Usha Sklena, was inspired to open El Bethel after working as a counselor in a faith-based recovery program for women court-ordered to undergo addiction treatment. She noticed the risk for relapse in women returning to broken homes and unhealthy lifestyles, and was called to action by scripture (Psalm 1:1-3).
El Bethel, or God of the house of God (Genesis 28:16-19), is the name by which God revealed himself to Jacob. True to its name, El Bethel Transition Home helps women heal and grow by developing a deep, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers."
