Beginnings is a non-profit agency, run by a very small staff and many dedicated volunteers. We are a 501-C-3 organization, funded by donations. Since 1996, Beginnings has offered free, confidential services to the community. Services are offered to all, regardless of age, race, marital status or religious beliefs. Our mission is to reach out in the love of Jesus Christ to our community in a spirit of help, truth, and hope. We offer education, material assistance, and spiritual counsel in order to foster healing and positive choices for women, men, and their pre-born children. (read less)

Pampers size 1 and 2
Huggies size 2
Luvs size 4
All brands size 6
And, a genuine thank you to all the kind people who support us in MANY ways throughout the year. You make our free services possible!

Wednesday we ran out of fuel cards for our clients, but the very next morning, God provided! Many thanks to Kristen at Good Better Best and Pastor Hart at Lighthouse church.

Volunteer Spotlight: Julia started serving at Beginnings the first year we opened - 1997! She also worked as our Client Services manager about 15 years ago before she took a full time teaching position. We are so glad she's "retired" and back in our building. Julia is willing to tackle any project, big or small, and always does it with a friendly smile. Welcome back!

Communication is important for healthy relationships. But, it isn’t always easy.

...and, thanks to the anonymous donor of this wonderful stroller system!

Elizabeth saved up points from her Bright Course lessons to take home this amazing donated stroller/car seat system! In the process of learning the things she wanted to about pregnancy and parenting, she has also earned free equipment that they will need when her baby arrives. It's a win-win!

All life is sacred!How do YOU Care for Life?

By listening to an older person share his stories?
By providing a meal and encouragement to a new mom?
By donating or volunteering at a Food Pantry?
By giving a blanket, food or toiletries to a homeless person?

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?”

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.’”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Strength to Love, 1963

If you have experienced an abortion, you may have felt immediate relief of the stresses that surrounded your pregnancy. Many women later experience feelings of regret, anger or depression. Often, this occurs years after their abortion.
Our confidential Abortion Recovery Program, Surrendering the Secret, is a biblically based curriculum with DVD-based lessons that will take you through a healing process and help you to release the hurt and grief that you may feel. You will be led through the lessons by our trained facilitator in a private setting.
To register for this free program, call our designated, confidential number 517.462.5999

“I’ve made so many friends [at Beginnings], and they’re extremely thoughtful.” - Brandi, client. “This year especially we’ve been able to get so many things [through the Earning & Learning program] and Christmas was a million times better. The gifts we received were all wrapped up, and my toddler’s was his favorite thing - construction vehicles!”

We have warm winter wear for your littles. Call us for an appointment at 517-278-3355.
