What we're about

New Beginnings Meetup is a sample of the support offered by the parent nonprofit organization, New Beginnings, Inc. Established in 1979, New Beginnings Inc. is the oldest and only group in the metro area that deals strictly with separation/divorce and is open to people both with and without children. Visit our website at www.newbeginningsusa.org for the full calendar of facilitated discussion groups, speakers and social events held throughout the DC metro area (MD, DC, VA).

Events posted on Meetup are mainly the social events, which still provide a good opportunity to meet others and learn how they are coping. Since our discussion groups are held in members' homes, these are not posted on the Internet. To find out when and where these are, complete the sign-up form on our website to get the free monthly newsletter.

And remember that an end is also a new beginning!
