New Beginnings’ mission is to provide shelter, advocacy and support for battered women and their children and to change attitudes and social institutions that foster and perpetuate violence. It provides services to those whose lives have been affected by domestic violence—physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. Some are in physical danger. Others are living with controlling partners in relationships that are emotionally abusive. Learn how to get help, how to get involved, how to donate and how to learn more about domestic violence in our community at New Beginnings.
