Great news! You can now support our reentry work with incarcerated and returning citizens through the Amazon Smile program! The money we receive from your purchases will go help pay for the weekly bus passes, grocery store gift cards, and other kinds of transitional assistance we offer to our members during their first year out of prison. We know from experience that this help, and the community of concern it represents, is often the difference between freedom and failure. Thanks for considering!

New Beginnings- Next Step is a peer-support group for Returning Citizens as they transition from incarceration to freedom. It is run both for, and with, ex-offenders, along with a vital and growing group of compassionate volunteer-facilitators, in order to build a community of hope, and a culture of accountability and possibility on the streets of Wilmington, Delaware.

New Beginnings-Next Step is the sister group of New Beginnings, which was founded by Brother David Schlatter O.F.M. inside the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution in the early nineties. Since 2005 it has been run by singer-songwriter John Flynn. Like New Beginnings-Next Step, the group is open to those of all faiths.


"As a returning citizen, I learned that this organization is a doer, and kept their word to support members in every aspect of staying free. The weekly meetings helped me to stay focused on my goals of re-entering society with the purpose of never going back to prison. The talks are deep and meaningful as well as needful. The weekly bus and food vouchers helped me to not do nothing stupid to eat or have an excuse not to job search. I'm so glad that this organization is the real deal and they have helped me feel like a citizen again." -John Kornegay
