Ashley Rodriguez

Ashley has been running New Life Beginnings, a shelter for pregnant women and children, for years now. Her mom founded the organization over 30 years ago, but Ashley is making sure it continues for years to come, without government funding. She has taken women that were victims of human trafficking, domestic violence, and homelessness. She has reunified countless families. She has organized many community outreaches, including backpack and school supply giveaways and Thanksgiving dinner giveaways.  The mission Ashley and her staff live by at New Life Beginnings is “we provide a safe shelter in a stable, caring, structured home environment. We provide individualized goal-oriented programs. We provide opportunities that empower women to break free of the welfare cycle to become independent contributing members of society. We cherish life, honor motherhood, and empower women”.
