For some families, it takes more than a 30-day shelter stay to start a new life. For those who need the next step, New Beginning Center’s Housing Program provides a supportive living environment* assisted with case management and social services. The goal of the program is for clients to learn more about financial responsibility, healthy family/personal relationships, and gain self confidence and purpose.
The Housing Program provides Life Skills groups, food and diaper pantry assistance, and works with both the Victim Outreach Program and Emergency Shelter Program in an effort to meet the basic and immediate needs of domestic violence victims. Case Management includes meetings in office and at home to set and review progress of goals. Clients also establish a savings account through New Beginning Center to help them prepare financially once they transition from the Housing Program to independent living. Once the client completes the program successfully, the Housing staff performs 3 month and 6 month follow up interviews to assess stability status.
