A Hand Up, Not a Hand Out
New Beginnings provides a hand up, not just a hand out. New Beginnings offers transitional housing in Lake County for former homeless in Clermont including single men, moms with children, and families who want to recover from their homeless situation. There is also a job skills training program for these important men, women and children in need throughout Lake and West Orange Counties. The job success rate of our clients has improved to over 80% of the graduating class.
Volunteers are trained and matched to work with an “at risk” man or woman in need of a friend, to provide guidance and advice on responsible living. We also offer financial mentoring. For more info on becoming a Mentor email [email protected] or apply by clicking the button below.
