New Beginnings is a state licensed Community Habilitation Program open to individuals age 21 and over who due to functional level, are unable to join the workforce.
Each individual in the program is provided daily opportunities to expand their skills in such areas as communication, socialization, self-help, recreation, and spirituality. This is done by meeting each person at their current level of functioning and providing varied input to strive for goals as determined by the New Beginnings staff, the individual’s family and caregivers, and county supports coordinator through the office of Service Access Management (SAM).
The individuals also venture beyond the bright and cheery room where the program is based to participate in the many building-wide happenings here at St. Joseph Center. We are extremely blessed to have these beautiful adults as part of the ever-expanding St. Joseph Center family. It has been an extraordinary experience from day one and we anticipate lots more fun to come!
For more information on New Beginnings or to arrange a visit to the program, please contact us or your county supports coordinator at SAM.
The program runs year round Monday through Friday, 8am until 3pm (except weekends and specific holidays).
