Relocating. Collaborating. Expanding Services.

Sandy Schoolfield and Jon Kechejian generously donated a $25,000 lead gift for the relocation and expansion of New Beginnings’ new, south county collaborative center. Will you join Jon and Sandy in helping us raise $250,000 to centralize our in-person programs and supportive services in one, welcoming location?


About New Beginnings

New Beginnings Counseling Center (NBCC) is committed to strengthening our community. Our mission is to provide our clients with the ability to lead healthy and productive lives through our Counseling Clinic, our Life Skills Parenting and Education Program, our Safe Parking and Rapid Re-Housing Program and our Supportive Services for Veterans Families Program.
