About Us

Educating, supporting, and empowering women and families in Johnson County

About 20 years ago, a group of believers came together to address a glaring need in our town. New Beginnings was the product of our founder, then a public school nurse, and a group of believers seeing young women suffer at the hands of abortion and answering the call of the Holy Spirit to help these young women. Through an “Experiencing God” Bible study, a supernatural hot tub meetup in a hurricane (you read that right!), a Focus on the Family Option Ultrasound gift, many generous partners, and too many miracles to count, New Beginnings opened in March of 2005 fully operational with volunteers, nurses, a Medical Director, & a Nurse Manager. What should have taken 3-5 years, took 6 months to complete because God! New Beginnings was His from the start and  nearly 20 years later, it still is. He continues to provide and lead the way for our staff and volunteers to provide a safe haven for his girls in our community to have a place to start fresh with Him in a “New Beginning”


New Beginnings Women’s Center represents a community of believers and medical professionals in Johnson County and surrounding communities who have generously supported New Beginnings since 2004 to ensure women have a safe haven to come and hear truth and to experience the reality of their pregnancy through ultrasound. We believe that Women Deserve Better Than Abortion!

We work together to provide services, resources, information, education, and support throughout the pregnancy and continuing long after the baby is born. This support helps women to see that they have many more options than they thought they did. A woman should never have to choose between her education, her career, or her baby.


We exist to empower women to choose abundant life. After a woman chooses life, she has the opportunity to connect with a godly mentor who meets with her weekly to provide relationship, support, education, and material resources. While going through the “Bright Course” curriculum, a young mother will receive Baby Bucks that she can spend in the Boutique for a variety of baby items, large and small.

But most of all she will be offered support and relationship, learn parenting skills, and be able to join a discipleship group “Embrace Grace” supported by local churches. Young fathers are now offered a similar group through our new “Fatherhood initiative”.
