True Beginnings is a community-based organization that has a mission to bring agencies together to offer wrap-around services to homeless justice-system impacted women with children as a means to an end, to fill the gaps many were falling through due to life circumstances. True Beginnings addresses trauma in the midst of housing and job readiness, as the first order of business in assisting women through transitioning from incarceration into a productive lifestyle. Through a three-phase process, True Beginnings offers gradual steps to assisting women with feeling whole and striving toward overcoming their past, making better substantial choices, and learning ways to cope and become productive citizens. Their Divinity House provides a safe place to heal and grow. Divinity House assists women who are justice-involved with obtaining permanent housing and we provide them long-term supportive services, depending on their needs, and accessing linkages to community services.
True Beginnings is working to build a housing campus that does not choose between housing and other services, but instead provides housing first and attaches services that provide stability, independence, support, a safe place to heal, and become a productive citizen for justice-involved women with children.
