New Beginnings partners with youth to create lasting change so all youth have a safe place to live and opportunities to grow.
Each year, New Beginnings provides hundreds of youth from across Maine with opportunities for the safety, connection, and growth that all young people need to thrive.
Our ProgramsOur services are designed to prevent young people from becoming homeless, support struggling families, help youth get off the streets, and provide an essential “safety net” for young people in Maine who are at risk of homelessness. Based in Lewiston, New Beginnings has program sites in Androscoggin, Franklin, and Kennebec counties for adolescents and young adults from across Maine who don’t have stable family support.
