How We Are Different

New Beginnings offers a transitional housing and jobs skills training program for men, women and children in need. They are carefully screened through police and medical records. Relatively healthy adults who have acceptable background check may be admitted. Most importantly, they must agree to our admissions policy. It includes: no alcohol or drugs at any time after moving in; and no sexual reading or activity. The house manager at New Beginnings monitors all activities and medicines to insure that all established policies are adhered to. New Beginninings is not an emergency shelter program.  If transitional housing is not available, we assist with referrals to other local resources.

Our Story: A Hand Up, Not a Hand Out

New Beginnings, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was founded in June 2007 by concerned community leaders who saw far too few services available in Central Florida for those losing their jobs and homes.

Today, New Beginnings is providing those services in many Central Florida communities, with over 1,000 volunteers to help meet these needs. New Beginnings has 6 transitional houses to serve 30 former homeless people including single men, single women, and mothers with children who want to recover from their homeless situation.
