In 1919 Mr. and Mrs. Jacob B. Hooge of Winkler, Manitoba, started the Bethesda Home on their own account for the crippled, blind, aged, and others who sought shelter therein. It was non-denominational, but most of the residents, 21 at its peak, came from the various Mennonite church groups in the southern part of Manitoba, such as Bergthaler, Sommerfelder, Rudnerweider, Old Colony, and Mennonite Brethren. The maintenance of most of the inmates was financed by the various church groups named. The Bethesda Home ceased to exist in 1945, and after that time the building served as a dormitory and boardinghouse for male students at the Peniel Bible School, Winkler.
