Founded in 1970 to address the growing drug epidemic affecting the community and its youth, New Morning is now the longest-serving nonprofit in El Dorado County.
For 50 years, New Morning has expanded its work to partner with schools, law enforcement, public agencies, and other nonprofit organizations to build a safety net for nearly 1,500 troubled children in our community each year. New Morning provides the County’s only shelter for runaway, homeless or abandoned youth. We also provide more counseling services to school-aged children than any other provider in the County.
New Morning can help…
Provide a safe place to talk about what you are feeling and explore what is happening in your life.
Give support when your relationships with family or friends seem unhealthy, hurtful, or out of control.
Generate confidence when you feel bad about yourself or feel isolated from your friends, family, and community.
Explore options when you need help with alcohol or drug prevention or rehabilitation.
Promote empowerment when depression and anxiety become unbearable.
Provide alternatives when you think suicide is a way out of life’s problems.
Or offer safe shelter when you are thinking of running away.
