New Beginnings is a long-term, Christian-based program that offers structure and spiritual guidance for a young mother and her new baby. Mothers are invited to stay at the home for up to five years following the birth of their child and remain engaged with programming in their first year on their own. During that time, they can learn the skills needed to manage a household while adjusting as a new family.
New Beginnings – A Home for Mothers was created by Christian Life Resources in 1993 to provide a safe, clean, and caring environment for both pregnant women and new mothers in need. New Beginnings opened in the metro-Denver area of Colorado and accepted its first mother and child in October 1993. In 2014 the home relocated to its current home facility. Although located in the Milwaukee area, New Beginnings welcomes referrals from across the country. This home houses up to four women and their children in furnished apartments equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, living room, and bedroom. The New Beginnings program includes house rules, program management, professional counseling opportunities, and other services and resources.
