Frequently Asked Questions

Is Bethlen a Non-Profit?

Bethlen Communities is a non-profit organization. Bethlen is recognized as a 501(c)3 and is tax-exempt.

Did Bethlen Begin as an Orphanage?

To provide for the many children left without means of support following the Smithton, Pennsylvania, Darr Coal Mine explosion, the Hungarian Reformed Federation of America (HRFA) opened an orphanage. Necessary expansion of the orphanage caused the HRFA to purchase the then Park Hotel near Ligonier for use as a home setting for the orphans and their caregivers.  The orphanage was then named the Bethlen Home and the mountain where Bethlen is located became known as Moriah Mountain, meaning “Jehovah will see to it”.  Over the next 14 years, 185 adjacent acres were also purchased to provide food and revenue for the orphanage. You can read more about our history here.
