For new mom Pixie King and one month old Gabriel, New Beginnings is a lifeline.
"All the supplies, they got me started," said King. "And anytime, like right now, that I need diapers, I know I can come here and they'll help me out."
New Beginnings serves 200 women a month. They come in for baby supplies and clothes, kept here in what's called the Blessings Store, and for one-on-one parenting classes.
"Of course it could be a single mom. It could be a grandmother, who's all the sudden taking care of their grandchildren for some reason," said Director Melody Warrick. "We just try to help them with their material needs."
The items on display in the Blessings Store aren't exactly handouts. The women have to spend baby bucks to get the items they need. They earn those bucks all sorts of ways. It could be going to school and doctor's appointments or managing money responsibly.
King got her new diaper bag and everything inside by completing eight weeks of bible study.
"Each time I came in each week and did my bible study, I got to pick out something to stick in my diaper bag," said King. "And when I finished, I got to bring it home."
Now King plans to give back to the nonprofit, using her talents as an artist to paint a mural inside.
Warrick said, "It's been a great blessing, when you do see the ones that make that change and are doing well. You get to see them a few years later and the kids are grown up and you see how well they've done."
New Beginnings relies on volunteers to keep its doors open. If you'd like to donate items, they always have a need for larger size diapers and baby formula. The office is located at 120 South Conrad Street in Benton.
