Cook a meal and make conversation. Making a simple nutritious meal is easy and sharing your time can be rewarding to all. New Beginnings is a bridge housing community for chronically homeless to transition to more permanent homes. We are located in south Fayetteville. Check out our social media or website for more information. A group or one person can make a meal onsite or offsite. We have 20-25 residents living on site and have a fully functional kitchen.
