Bethesda Girls Home was a behavior modification facility located on 196 Blue Lake Road Petal, Mississippi 39465 [1].

It remains unclear when the facility closed but an article in New York Times claimed that it was around 1980.

Program structure

This facility used corporal punishment

The program worked like most of the Roloff homes on the basis of strict rules, isolation from the families and corporal punishment. [2]


Pregnant girls, who was committed to these facilities due to their pregnancy being an embarrassment to their family were often forced to give their child up for adoption. One of these typical cases can be learned about in an adoption forum. [3]

I have always wondered about my older 1/2 brother. My mom was sent to the Roloff Bethesda Girls Home in Hattiesburg, MS when she was 16 (in 1973 or 1974). All she has ever told me is that he was adopted by missionairies...she thinks. I am curious to know how he is. If you could be him and you feel comfortable, please email me at ....

In the news

In 1980 the authorities raided the facility [4].
