Bethlehem Inn is the first transitional housing facility of Waseca and is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a mission to help women and children. The facility is designed for only a 90-day stay for families. The former convent of Sacred Heart Catholic Church has been turned into a 16-person capacity, short-term housing project for women and children.
