Help New beginnings

New Beginnings Counseling Center is a non-profit 501c3; we provide quality counseling and related educational programs to a diverse group of clients. Our services are provided through an affordable sliding-scale basis, and we offer an initial quote so our clients are clearly informed of the costs. We also offer homeless outreach programs and an RV Safe Parking program for folks living in their vehicles. We have an extremely successful Life Skills class that we are able to offer the community in both English and Spanish versions.

Since its inception New Beginnings has developed partnerships with many major social service agencies in the community. We are committed to the efficient use of community resources, and we work hard to respond to needs rather than duplicating services. Because New Beginnings has a diverse base of support, all of those who step forward and make a donation play a vital role in helping us offer our important services.
