Licensed dental staff members provide services in the mobile clinic, which travels to schools in Rock Island, Henry, Mercer, Scott, Jackson, and Clinton counties. Give Kids a Smile has provided dental services for over 18,000 children between 2011 and 2017.

In FY17, Bethany’s Mental Health therapists and case managers served over 1,500 clients and 98 percent of clients achieved their treatment plan goals.
… the Bethany Black Hawk Phoenix Day Treatment Program, which for over 35 years has provided special education and case management services to area youth at risk of disrupting from their homes of origin and being placed in a residential setting. The graduation rate for freshman is 85 percent after four to five years, well above the usual graduation rate of 40-50 percent according to research of day treatment programs.
