New Beginnings – A Home for Mothers, located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, provides a loving and supportive place for single mothers to start a new life. This Christian-based residential setting is designed to help new mothers become responsible parents – by raising their new babies in a caring environment.
New Beginnings enables a single mother to live away from potentially dangerous or harmful influences and nurture her baby in a positive environment. We provide a unique opportunity for generationally poor mothers to grow in their confidence and independence while being supported in raising their child.
Currently, our program provides opportunities to advance education, learn fundamental parenting and financial skills, participate in counseling sessions, and acquire an objective baseline for responsible living through a structured faith-based program. Ultimately, our vision is to equip each mother with the skills and education needed to earn self-sustaining wages, without an indeterminate need for government assistance.
Mothers come to New Beginnings for reconstruction – reassembling the broken pieces of their challenged lives. New Beginnings provides the opportunity to learn from the past and gain the skills to move forward.
Presently, New Beginnings leases a small apartment building that can house four mothers and their babies. We are always full, and we frequently must tell an applicant, “We have no room.”
The New Beginnings building is designed to serve up to 12 mothers and their children. It will also include all the offices, program, and activity space necessary to serve New Beginnings for years to come, with provisions for future expansion.
We appeal to your heart for mothers and their babies to help us build this home for mothers. Help us make this place a reality and a model to be emulated.
