History of New Choices
New Choices was incorporated in 1983 as a non-profit agency dedicated to the unique needs of victims/survivors of domestic violence and family abuse. We opened our first shelter, or “safe house”, in the 1990s.
For over 30 years the advocates here have tirelessly worked to help victims of the crime of domestic/family violence through their individual crises. We meet with victims wherever they reach out to us: in the hospital, at their church or work, at the police station, wherever their ordeal has taken them. We can be found in the courts, helping victims through criminal and civil proceedings. In your communities, educating workplaces, church and community groups about the impact of domestic violence on the victims and their communities. We are in your schools educating children about alternatives to violence and abuse as they experience it: conflict, bullying and teen dating violence. We work every day to become an integral part of the essential underpinning of people working diligently to make our communities safe for everyone.
If home isn’t a safe place – where in the world is?
Each victim/survivor is unique but their stories are eerily similar and our dedicated team of 3 full time and 7 part time staff strive to help each find hope by encouraging them to tell their story in their own words and time, to guide them through the criminal and domestic relations courts and offering they and their children a safe place to sleep and recover, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
