Genesis Home of New Beginnings
About a year ago I began to actively pursue my vision and open the Genesis Home of New Beginnings, a residential home that will service adolescent girls ages 12-18.
Our purpose is to provide a home like environment while meeting the needs of each young woman who resides there. The focus of GHONB is to offer a holistic approach to healing the physical, mental and emotional wounds that have crippled the lives of these young woman. Services offered range from but are not limited to
*Enrichment components such as meditation and life skills training
As we prepare to open we are still in need of a vehicle that will seat 6-8 passengers and other living essentials for the girls. Your donation would ensure that the girls at the Genesis Home of New Beginnings have a strong foundation and are able to start their journey of healing with the necessities needed to embark upon a fresh start!
I am so proud of my #1 Shonda Nora McFadden. Shonda was gifted with the ability to nurture, protect, guide, and love from a very young age, this was born out of her innate nature to care for others, especially the young and most vulnerable among us. As a daughter, there are no words to describe my best friend; I can say that now that she is grown woman. Becoming her mother at fifteen, really allowed us to grow together through the good and not so good. Shonda is the eldest of four siblings that she helped to care for, nurture, teach, guide, and most of all LOVE, due in part to my absence at times as a Mother, but more than that out of LOVE. She continues to be an anchor in their lives. Shonda is a mother to three beautiful daughters, Iyona (16), Sajiah (5), and Meloni (4). She is the best Auntie to her nieces and only nephew, and a host of other surrogate nieces and nephews. Shonda has served as a foster parent and kinship caregiver to countless children in York County, PA. The vision of Genesis Home of New Beginnings is being realized as it comes to fruition. The heart, passion, and determination that have gone into Genesis is unparalleled. While she has a core group of support, it is Shonda that has continued to press forward at all times. She is no stranger to trauma and impediments that can hinder a child’s healthy development, but she is a testament that you can overcome and reach back to help those in need. The word is true when it says “He comforts us in all our trouble, so that we may be a comfort to those in their trouble, with the comfort we ourselves have received.” Please consider supporting this endeavor to change the lives of adolescent female’s ages 12-18 years old.
