The BEGIN ANEW nonprofit organization is a resource for families and communities in need. Our purpose is to aid in the development of individual prosperity through economic and social services. In doing so, we will strengthen the family unit and, in turn, strengthen the community. To this end we promise to hold ourselves to the absolute highest standards and put the client first. Aid is given in the form deemed most necessary to help foster the desired end result which is self sufficiency and a stronger family unit. Through dignity and respect families will be educated, counseled and guided in a manner that best suits their needs to enable them to become self supporting members of the community in which they live.
Our grants will be used for any education, training, placement and counseling services necessary to guarantee the highest rate of success. A minimum of 80% of all funds generated through this organization will be used for this purpose. Some grants may also be made to other nonprofits or special programs that BEGIN ANEW feels accomplishes this result. The BEGIN ANEW group strives to build a stronger America through building a stronger family unit first.

a. By serving the entire community with which we live, not a select group based on statistical information.
