I am a man who showed up at New Beginnings 9 months after my marriage died, thinking I should be getting over it, and failing miserably. Friends and family tried, but they had no idea what I was going through and advice like "get over it" and "get back up on the horse" was less than useful. I found a building that was filled every Monday night with people who "get it" because they are at various stages of getting through (not 'over') it. I've been saying "New Beginnings saved my life" for years, with only a little exaggeration. Listening to others and hearing yourself describe what you are going through to supportive people (no therapists, NB is ONLY people experiencing a loss of a relationship) got me through the dark tunnel and out into the light. Now I am "better than I have ever been". So I've been giving back, as an officer, a group facilitator, and still today as a volunteer. I will support NB for the rest of my life because I believe in it.

This is a one-of-a-kind support organization is the geographic area that offers compassionate, thoughtful and caring self-help facilitated group support for those who have experienced a loss. My loss was through divorce and in less than 3 months I had progressed far beyond my previous 2 years in private counseling. Can't speak highly enough about their work and the great need they fill. I believe in it so highly that I have since become an officer as a way of giving back.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I speak with many people who find their experiences at New Beginnings invaluable and cherish their Monday night meetings. Others who are out of crisis feel connected when previously they were isolated and alone.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Working with people who are caring, compassionate and committed to the continuation and constant improvement of services offered by New Beginnings. Also, being able to help others on their journey, while still learning about myself.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Committed to providing a safe environment where people can continue to heal and grow 52 weeks a year. Their concern for others and their compassion is visible throughout any Monday evening there.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

offer a safe environment for anyone who is devastated over a loss because of divorce, separation or widowhood. They could also offer healing and wholeness in all 50 states and in other countries.

Ways to make it better...

I had gone to New Beginnings sooner.
