New Beginnings-Without Violence & Abuse Comm. Engage VISTA
 
 
 
There is a high correlation between poverty and those affected by domestic and sexual violence, with victims of violence experiencing many additional barriers including affordable healthcare, safe and sustainable housing, and lack of accessibility to legal assistance, resulting in lengthy shelter stays, increased complex case management needs, and fewer options for transitional housing and independent living for families. Statistics show that one in three women and one in four men in New Hampshire will experience domestic violence in their lifetime, and one in four women and one in twenty men will experience sexual assault in their lifetime (New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence). New Beginnings is one of the fourteen member programs of the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, and has been providing free and confidential services to those whose lives have been affected by violence since 1991; including 24-hour support and accompaniment, emergency shelter, legal and medical social service advocacy, and financial empowerment programming.
