Residential Program


Here at The New Beginnings, we are centered around helping single mothers not only survive, but to thrive in all areas of their lives. We provide a safe environment to grow and overcome obstacles that may hinder spiritual growth and aspirations for more.


Each family is assigned a two- bedroom, two-bathroom apartment. A refundable security deposit fee of $500 is applicable, along with a monthly case management fee (income-based, ranging from $50-$300). The beautiful front and back yards are fenced in for the children’s safety with a play area and a swing set. Each apartment is fully and beautifully furnished complete with all household needs including a washer and dryer.

Life Skills

Weekly life skills classes are held to guide and support the women in all areas of their lives and to equip them with the tools needed to nurture their children at each stage of development. Every session is volunteer led and focuses on issues related to parenting, health and wellness, and finances.


Being a single mother often comes with some unique challenges, especially in the financial arena. After all, raising kids doesn’t come cheap. According to the USDA, it costs $233,610 on average to raise a child to age 18. Budgeting is taught in real time during weekly case management meetings with staff. We help monitor their financial resources to ensure they are effectively managing their budget and do not lose sight of their goals while they are here.


Some of our residents may come with issues of past trauma. When emotional issues are affecting the progress of moving forward to a healthier life, we will assist our ladies to get the help they need by offering referrals to individual counseling and psychiatric services.

Spiritual Development

At The New Beginnings, we believe that faith is a corner stone of who we are and why we exist. Equipping single moms with the Spiritual tools to fight the good fight is of the upmost importance. Families are expected to attend church every Sunday, participate in community bible studies offered on site, and surround themselves with God-fearing individuals who assist them in positive change.


Our mentors are uniquely called and gifted by God to serve as counselors to young mothers. Each woman in the program is offered a mentor who is like a friend, a coach, and a cheerleader. The mentor helps the women by answering questions, listening to frustrations, and being an encouragement.



Our goal is to offer struggling single mothers hope for a brighter future for themselves and their child(ren). We do this by providing a safe, comfortable place to live while mom pursues a degree or certification program.

The New Beginnings is not an emergency placement program or a crisis center. There is typically a waiting list of mothers looking to get into our program. Completing an application and going through the interview process is the best way to put yourself into a position to be accepted into the program. The process takes anywhere between 2-6 weeks.
