“Back to school” is here again, but we really never stop learning. B.B. King once said, “Education is the one thing no one can take away from you.”
We promote education here at New Beginnings, and learning is easiest when the student is not fighting for survival. Our clients are survivors.
For Anna, life has been difficult. This brave woman grew up in foster care, buried her husband after a tragic motorcycle accident, and suffered terrible domestic violence. Then the single mother was diagnosed with colon cancer.
God brought her to New Beginnings.
She would be quick to say she’s been learning all along. But the resulting growth has picked up pace now that she has a home for her daughters and has stopped worrying whether or not they will eat each day.
“God gave us a safe place to finally heal,” Anna says. Please read about Anna’s scholarship through a local dental assistance program and about her college plans for 2019.
To clarify, we don’t insist on education for education’s sake. We see how it fundamentally improves income potential, so that our clients and residents can earn a livable wage. Education helps people know how to steward what they’ve received. And the right education can empower people to give back so that they can, in turn, help others.
