Programs Overview

New Beginnings has many programs that help survivors of domestic violence at any point in their journey to freedom. Whether they are still living with their abuser or have left and need some additional support to heal, New Beginnings is there. We also know that in order to meet our mission, we must aim upstream and stop violence before it begins with prevention and intervention programs for young people.

By Your Side

A caring, non-judgmental, individualized approach is at the center of what we do. We encourage survivors to set and to work toward their own goals. Our services include one-on-one advocacy, support groups, legal advocacy and referrals, and mental health therapy. Anyone can access By Your Side services by calling our 24-hour Helpline.

Home Safe

We welcome survivors home by finding them new, affordable housing, by helping them keep their own home, or by welcoming them temporarily into their own apartment at New Beginnings. Our short-term residential housing offers survivors a safe, temporary place to stay while they work to find permanent housing. We also offer emergency hotel stays for safety and confidentiality.

Break the Cycle

We aim to break the cycle of violence—or intervene before it begins—by working directly with children in our programs and in the community. Our youth advocacy and parenting support help children to heal from the experience of witnessing abuse, while our teen prevention programs educate youth on healthy relationships and support teens who are experiencing dating abuse.

Building Connections

We mobilize our community to action. By changing the misunderstandings and behaviors that perpetuate a culture where abuse is overlooked, we can work together to end domestic violence. New Beginnings stays connected to our community through educational and prevention trainings. 

Independence Fund

Small financial challenges should not stand in the way of a survivor’s freedom and safety. We remove barriers every day by giving survivors and their children direct financial assistance for things like rent, housing deposits, moving costs, transportation, utilities, medical help, legal fees, and more.
