WENATCHEE — “New Beginnings” reads a sign next to the door. The door swings open and closed with great frequency each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It leads to a room in the old church shared by Catholic Family and Child Services. Outside, cars stream by on busy Mission Street.
Things are busy inside too, but friendlier. The mobile home-shaped room bustles with animated conversation, people coming and going, and a sharing of hugs, handshakes, salutations and goodbyes.
