The New Start Center's mission is for abused women, men and their children to lead safe, productive lives by providing temporary shelter, education, support groups and community awareness on domestic violence.
The Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that by the most conservative estimates, each year 1 million women suffer non-fatal violence by an intimate partner. Despite of this knowledge, many people believe that domestic violence is a private family matter and that it does not have any bearing on their day-to-day lives. We are here to help.
New Start Center is a private, non-profit, 501(c)3 charitable organization which opened its doors on July 1, 2000, for the purpose of assisting abused women and their children.
Our services are available free of charge to all physically or emotionally abused women, men and their children. Criteria for acceptance and participation in the program are the same for everyone without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex or handicap.
