New Beginning Center is committed to community education. We see education as the key to awareness and prevention of domestic violence and its dynamics.

Looking for someone to speak about domestic violence to your church, social, civic, or business group? New Beginning Center can talk about the work being done through our services as well as our client and staff needs regarding volunteers and resources. We also offer training to a wide variety of occupations wanting to know more about domestic violence, its effect and help for its victims. Teachers, law enforcement agents, business owners, clergy, and health care workers are some of the groups that can benefit from training.

Interested in volunteering? We will train you through our speaker’s bureau to aid in community education. We also need volunteers to help with a variety of community awareness opportunities such as health/community fairs and awareness campaigns such as Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the Clothesline Project.

Expect Respect
Seeking a teen-targeted program about healthy relationships?
