We’re here to help
Founded in 1970 to address the growing drug epidemic affecting the community and its youth, New Morning is now the longest serving nonprofit in El Dorado County.
For more than 40 years, New Morning has expanded its work to partner with schools, law enforcement, public agencies, and other nonprofit organizations to build a safety net for nearly 1,500 troubled children in our community each year. New Morning provides the County’s only shelter for runaway, homeless or abandoned youth. We also provide more counseling services to school aged children than any other provider in the County.
See our Services page to find out how New Morning can help you and your family.
