Our Mission

New Life For Youth is a residential, Christian-based training center for people with life-controlling problems. We are a non-profit organization that has helped change the lives of countless people from all over the United States and Puerto Rico. Our spiritual program helps those from all walks of life, many whom have struggled with alcohol, drug addiction and other life controlling issues for much of their lives.

The purpose of New Life is not only to save, but to change lives. We are showing men and women there is hope by encouraging their education in the areas of academic and Biblical studies. We are preparing them to be more productive members in the community through a strong foundation in the Word of God and a proper understanding of Christian principles. This enables them to become contributing members of their families and communities, bringing the strength of Christ and the message of salvation to the World.

New Life For Youth is operated on Christian principles and procedures. We believe in the power of transformation as opposed to incarceration, that the lives of suffering men and women can be changed by the grace of God and through the saving power of Jesus Christ. We maintain a disciplined home environment where the students are given a genuine chance at a new beginning. Here they receive the vital skills that are necessary for a complete life change. We stand on the promises of God. We base our program principles upon the Word of God:  “Wherefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things are passed away, behold, all things are new.”

For almost 50 years, hundreds of thousands of students and families have received help from New Life For Youth. Students live in our homes for a 12 to 18-month period, receiving residential care, practical mentorship, vocational and life-skills training, as well as an opportunity for recovery from the life-controlling problems that had been destroying their lives. Help--A HAND UP NOT A HAND OUT--is provided without regard to race, social background or creed.
