PLYMOUTH NEW BEGINNINGS
A safe place for single people to meet for mutual support
Plymouth New Beginnings
We are Plymouth New Beginnings, a non-profit, non-sectarian support organization located in Plymouth, Massachusetts. The focus of our self-help group is to provide a safe, supportive place for recently single, widowed, divorced, or newly separated adults who are in need of support in dealing with the day to day issues associated with their situation.
Through small group interaction, led by a facilitator, the members learn to begin the process of building a single life and eventually re-enter the social world in a safe environment.
We are non-sectarian and self supporting. The meetings are topic driven group discussions, usually offered by one of the members in the group, with the intent of helping the newly single person see that this is a temporary setback, not a permanent way of life. We also offer planned events that give members a safe place to go to socialize.
Our interaction as individuals during refreshment time or at planned functions helps to build new friendships and social circles. Many of us have lived through similar situations and are proof positive that a new, happy life is possible.
If you or someone you know would benefit from our meetings and hospitality please come to a meeting on Tuesday evening or give Elaine a call at 774-678-0067 for further information. Thank you.
