Aerial View of BeginningsWelcome To Beginnings!

Beginnings Inc. is an educational and community service organization in the rural town of Briceland, in Humboldt County, California. Our mission is to "support and encourage community services." Beginnings is community-based and guided by its membership. The board oversees the land and property, the use and maintenance of the roads, gardens, water system, and orchards. They also set policy to fullfill long range planning and organizational objectives as well as assisting the workgroups achieve their goals.


Children’s House opened its doors in September 1973. In 1974 a group of community members came together interested in forming a community center and educational alternative for young families and created Beginnings Inc. The Briceland property was found and purchased in 1977. The Octagon was constructed between 1977-1979; Children’s House 1981; Skyfish 1984; and the Yin Yang Pavilion in 1988. The Beginnings Board meets monthly and minutes for the past 30 years are on file in the office.

At beginnings, all are welcome regardless of race, national origin, color, ancestry, religion, or sexual orientation.

Never doubt that a small, group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” —Margaret Mead
