Betel Australia

Betel Australia is a caring, not-for-profit Christian community located in the heart of Victoria’s Yarra Valley and dedicated to restoring homeless and substance-dependent people to productive, independent lifestyles. Our residences are drug- and alcohol-free, and all our support services are free of charge (See ‘Admission Procedures’ for more details). We offer at all times the opportunity of restoration to all persons who seek help.
