Life Skills Parenting & Education Program
Life Skills & Parenting Impact
New Beginnings’ Life Skills Parenting & Education Program teaches critical hands-on skills, mindfulness strategies, and overall life skills to those who need practical tools to establish and maintain stability in their home environments. In existence for nearly 20 years, our program has been offered at no cost through community centers and non-profit organizations that serve individuals, young parents, at-risk youth, and low-income families. New Beginnings also support program participants with wraparound services ranging from individual counseling, housing and financial assistance, and guided access to community resources.

Our groups for parents teach hands-on skills that help them define effective parental roles, end destructive behaviors, shift their thinking, and develop new perspectives to improve their lives. We are currently partnering with Transition House and Villa Majella to provide courses in English and Spanish.
Clients are served at both our own agency and at our partner agencies, such as Villa Majella of Santa Barbara, Transition House, St. Vincent’s, the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara, and the Lou Grant Parent Child Workshop in Carpinteria. Our Life Skills Parenting & Education Program has worked with dozens of agencies throughout our community over the past 20 years.
