Meeting a Specific Need in the Fleetwood Community

New Beginnings House is a two-bedroom ranch style home serving one family at a time. The endeavor offers counseling, financial guidance, planning, and other customized services of support based upon the needs of the guest family. Each family served receives a hand up, not a hand-out. This outreach ministry hopes to help break the cycle of poverty or prevent a family from falling into it.

Since acquiring the property, we have served six local families in need of assistance. Successful completion of this mission is measured through life skills empowerment, improved financial stability, and independence as the strengthened family moves not just on, but up.

Strengthening the Community

New Beginnings House helps families heal and grow together with the support of a loving community. Helping others in this way is a powerful experience for our volunteers as well. It simply feels good to be a part of this important outreach!

 

Ways to Help

Contact a member of the Mission Ministry or the church office to support this ministry. Opportunities include:

  • Volunteer your time and skill to do minor maintenance such as painting and pruning.

  • Serve on the mission house board.

  • Volunteer specialized gifts you might have to work with families on their individual needs (tutoring, resume writing, counseling, etc).

  • Respond to requests for new or gently used household items as they are needed.

  • Make a financial contribution.
