New Beginnings-Next Step meetings have resumed.
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.
"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
