About Us

new_life_home_brushstroke

For four decades, New Life Home has been changing the lives of women facing addiction and other life challenges. Many were about to lose custody of their young children. Through our faith-based recovery program, we’ve helped women find a better path. Below, a few of our many successes share their stories of physical recovery and spiritual resurrection.
KIMMY

Drinking and taking drugs at 12, by senior year Kimmy was using meth. She married at 21, had two children and fell deep into a cycle of domestic violence. She tells about New LIfe Home’s powerful impact on her family:

“Since entering New Life Home for Women and Children, I have been given a second chance. I have become free from addiction and for the first time in my life, I am a mom and a woman of integrity. The program hasn’t just changed me but has transformed my kids’ lives as well. My son, who was taught to beat women and follow steps into prison, now has a hope and a future and my daughter no longer lives in fear and anxiety. I may not know exactly what my children will become, but I know they will change the world.”

STARLA

Starla is proof that change is possible for anyone through initiative and God’s love. At age four, police found her behind a dumpster, beaten and crying, and her life got worse from there, hitting bottom with a suicide attempt as a young woman. She recalls:

“When I woke…I felt as though someone was there. Today I know it was Jesus telling me that I shall not die but declare the words of the Lord. I walked through the doors of The New Life Home for Women and Children on December 3, 2009. I knew this was going to be a New Beginning for me and my boys. I gave my life to the Lord on January 1, 2010 and since then I am excited to live…to see what God has for me and my children!”

CLARA

Some of the women who need New Life’s help the most may seem happy and successful on the outside. After losing her sister as a teenager, Clara became an overachiever, drowning her sadness in hard work, sports and relationships before turning to alcohol.

“…Then I heard about New Life Home for Women and Children – a place where I could go and get the help I needed without having to leave my son behind. New Life gave me a place to rest and restore my heart from the inside out. With fresh courage, new tools, and an inner strength, I have enrolled in college and I am studying to be a nurse. My hope is to be able to help others work through illness, fears, and life’s ‘battles’ so they could experience what I now have – a renewed peace and joy in God.”
