New Beginnings Studio & Home Away from Home

The Athens-Hocking-Vinton 317 Board funds the New Beginnings Studio and Home Away from Home Programs, which offer a warm and welcoming environment for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness in Hocking and Vinton counties. The programs provide daily encouragement and support and foster connections with others. Participants can enjoy a range of amenities, including lunch, nutritional support, creative programs, field trips, hygiene resources, and basic social service supports. Attendance is open to all, and individuals do not need to be ISBH clients to participate.

Was one of first clients ever and this place is God sent. The staff are all very nice and down to earth and will go out of their way to help. Thank you for all you’ve done for me.

I can't say enough about the staff here. They go above and beyond in order to help their clients. I've always been treated with courtesy and respect. I would recommend anyone to go there if they find themselves in a position where they need assistance.

These people, legit saved my life. I wouldn't have been able to make it where I am today without this program. When you are released from prison the don't give any sort of stepping stone, just kinda throw you to the streets. Intergrated Services has been there with me from the beginning making sure that I do not fall on my face. Thanks for everything you did/do for me!!!!
