  Dear Friends and Supporters,
  During the final months of 2008, as the entire country was first feeling the effects of the coming recession, the New
  Beginnings’ Board of Directors was completing work on a five year Strategic Plan. This agency-wide process brought
  together the Board’s role of oversight and goal setting with the staff’s management, social change and program work,
  all focused on supporting the agency’s mission.

  New Beginnings has always been fortunate to have strong support from individuals, organizations and corporations in
  our community — support reflecting the impact domestic violence has on so many lives. But everywhere we saw the
  signs of belt tightening and decreased or deferred giving. In the fall of 2008 we already knew that 2009 was going to
  be a tough year financially. Board and staff responded with a plan for 2009 that focused on securing the organizational
  health of New Beginnings.

  As we prepared for the possibility of a decrease in revenue, our approach was practical, prudent and assertive. We cut
  our expenses and made staffing changes to reduce costs — without decreasing the quality or quantity of our services.
  In fact, in some areas we were able to initiate new services, for instance providing expanded mental health services
  through our newly hired mental health therapist and mental health interns. We also continued our investment in
  technology to improve communication and to streamline documentation of service delivery.

  One major project that was already in our plans was a much needed renovation of our Transitional Housing Program
  facility. For several years water seepage had been a problem, threatening the structural integrity of the buildings. In
  2009, with the assistance of Common Ground we secured the needed funding for the repairs and began the work.

  We are grateful for our many partners in the work of supporting survivors of domestic violence, as well as the larger
  challenge of ending domestic violence.

  All of you — donors, volunteers and colleagues — helped us successfully manage a difficult year. You provided the
  resources for us to work: to shelter and support survivors, to tend to the needs of children who have seen and heard
  too much, to guide teens to healthy relationships and to advocate for lasting social change.

  We know that your support reflects the impact domestic violence has on individuals and on the community, and that it
  demonstrates a strong desire to end abuse and to create a community where healthy relationships thrive. That support
  makes all the difference.

  Thank you!

managing the Help Line and its over 7,400 callers; housing the
specialized legal advocacy and chemical dependency services;
providing Kids’ Club, a group for children who have lived with
domestic abuse; and serving as the focal point for new initiatives
and partnerships.

For the many people who live with abuse, it is a place to connect
with others, to find resources; to plan an escape, or to maximize
safety in the midst of continuing danger. For family and friends, it
is a place to learn how to help. For abused women who struggle
with addiction, it is a weekly support group that is always
available--same time, same place, no shame.

All services are advocacy-based and emphasize safety planning.
