Experienced Team with a Passion for Healing

Our Story and History

Prompted by the love, concern, vision, and faith of local community members for its children and youth, New Morning is berthed in the basement of a church. Although we have moved away from our original location, we’ve stayed the course in continuing to reach for our vision of helping kids be healed and hopeful.
