We wouldn’t be here without your love and support. We are a small organization with a mighty mission, and we work hard to support women and men in our community. We help them find their voice, determine their direction while empowering them to take the first step in life! We also walk alongside our graduates for as long as they need us. This is the New Choices way.
We appreciate your support on Extra Give and all year-round.
New Choices offices across the state have been closed since the mandated state shutdown in mid-March. While our physical offices may be closed, we are still able to provide support services online. We are also enrolling students for an upcoming new, virtual class format.
If you need assistance and are able to meet online or wish to participate in a class, please contact Deb St. Onge via email.
If you are a New Choices alumni, you can also contact Deb St. Onge, our Program Director, for support services.
