"Peace not Pieces"
Our mission at ANu Beginning is simple "interrupt and impact lives through stability, responsibility and generosity"
ANu Beginning's specalized approach to mentoring & Character development offers youth & young adults the opportunity to hear 1st hand from others about their pasts that they lived to tell about, thus allowing for our participants to learn from others mistakes, which is always less painful. (We've bumped our heads so that you don't have to bump yours too, unless you insist)
We also work alongside other community organizations and help provide stable, sustainable employment and O.J.T for those who desire a new beginning.
This program was envisioned a few years ago. After reading the artical "What should Clark County do with teenage prostitutes?" We saw a need to be able to counteract the problem of juveniles taking the hard road, going to jail and ultimately not being able to get jobs. "These girls are what you call throwaway kids,"Roske says. "Nobody wants them, nobody loves them, and they know it" Here at ANu Beginning we KNOW that there are NO "throwaway kids"...They are ALL wanted & loved & we want them to know it!!
With aburning desire to be a VOICE for those who were voiceless Rachael Richardson set out on a course that would change her life & the life of many others that she came accrossed. Starting in a warehouse that was rented for their local cleaning company God's Way cleaning the Richardsons developed an Ecommerce program for youth & young adults to be able to make a viable income all while being exposed to THRIVING & not just surviving. Most commonly referred to as "The Shop" the youth are required to journal, participate in group sessions, dress up & attend field trips that educate them on anything from composting (Vegas Roots community garden) to amber lamps (antique mall)
