Support Our Work

There are many ways to give.

New Beginnings relies on the generosity of the community to meet its mission. You can make a tax-deductible donation online at any time of the year by clicking here, or by sending a check to New Beginnings at 134 College Street, Lewiston, ME 04240.
We also welcome in-kind donations of needed items year-round. Many of our programs provide meals, hygiene items, clothing, linens, and basic household supplies for the young people we serve.  Please contact us if your group would like to sponsor a donation drive: 207-795-4077.



***Please note that under ongoing social distancing, MAILED donations are preferred. We are accepting donation drop offs of items from our wish list on weekdays at 134 College Street in Lewiston. Please ring the intercom at the main side entrance and someone will be out to help you.***
