How We Help
Over 50 Years of Serving Our Community
For over 50 years, New Morning has provided a safety net of services to youth and their families in El Dorado County. These services include the 24-hour Emergency Youth Shelter (the only one in El Dorado County) for homeless and runaway youth. We have programs to support alcohol and drug treatment for adolescents, counseling and support for pregnant and parenting teens, and counseling for high-risk youth. We define high-risk youth as abused, suicidal, experiencing school failure, runaway or thrown out of their home, or engaging in delinquent behavior.
The Ashby House
New Morning is excited to announce plans to expand our Emergency Youth Shelter. The needs of our youth are great and constantly changing. These changes necessitate a need to build a study hall and family meeting room. The study hall will provide dedicated space for our kids to continue the importance of education and application. The family meeting room will provide much needed space for families to meet and to heal. It’s our hope that this room will also be utilized by social workers and counselors to support youth as they move forward from brokenness to building. Read on for ways you can be part of this effort.
