New Beginning Children’s Homes is continuing to grow in new ways, but with the same heart to serve those that need a family to care and connect with them on their journey. Since 2011, New Beginnings has built 5 homes, each 2520 square foot home consists of 6 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. Large open family kitchen, dining room and living area makes this a great space for family living. Outdoor living on campus includes, large recreation area including playground, basketball court and grass areas for a wide variety of activities, pavilion area complete with grill and fire pit area for family fun! Sustainability areas include space for up to 6 calves, 36 chickens and seasonal garden.
From 2013-2019 these homes staffed with full-time house parents have allowed over 300 children, primarily sibling groups to be reunited or ability to stay together as they have entered into state foster care at no fault of their own due to some type of abuse, abandonment or neglect. These countless children have had the opportunity to be loved, heal and grow during their time in these family homes.
The landscape of foster care across the country is changing with new federal laws and state directives responding to these laws. New Beginnings is continuing to grow in new ways as these homes are being used to provide a family home to young people that are aging out of foster care, other group homes and/or facing homelessness due to abandonment by family or other support systems. Young adults between the ages of 18-23 have a family support system, opportunity to learn many life skills, education, job and spiritual support that will give them the abilities to succeed now and for their life’s continued journey.
In addition to our on site campus youth program, New Beginnings also continues to love community foster homes by supporting children in homes with food, clothing and school supplies at various times throughout the year. Making Jesus Known and Re-Writing Futures!
