Mission: New Beginnings empowers survivors and mobilizes community awareness and action to end domestic violence.
New Beginnings provides services to those whose lives have been affected by domestic violence - physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. Some who use their services are in physical danger. Others are living with controlling partners in relationships that are emotionally abusive. They are here to help them find safety and knowledge so that they can find their own liberation.
