Mission and Vision



New Life For Adults and Youth has offered both hope and help to troubled and addicted young people and their despairing families for more than 52 years. We have a long history of success in both outreach and residential programs.


Our faith-based ministry has recovery homes for men, women, and moms with children. Miracles happen in these homes every day as young people are freed from bondage to drugs and alcohol.


By supporting our work, you help bring a second chance, the miracle of a new life, to young people. You can help give them an opportunity to become productive citizens and welcomed members of their families.

The vision of New Life For Youth is to give "HOPE" to every young man and woman who is now in bondage to drug or alcohol addiction. We show men and women that there is hope by encouraging their education in academic and Biblical studies.


We help prepare them to be more productive members of the community through vocational training, a strong foundation in the Word of God. 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.

“But we press forward knowing that there is a different outcome when we allow the love of God to change our mind and change our hearts."

Thank you so much for your partnership in New Life For Adults and Youth’s ministry. As we reflect on the many blessings of 2019, I’m deeply thankful for God’s provision and your compassionate response to the needs of the men, women, and children we care for in our New Life for Adults and Youth homes. 

Ever since my mom and dad and our family started reaching hurting people in 1971, it has been my privilege to work beside them carrying on their mission to reach the suffering. As we look back to how many thousands of broken hearts we have seen healed, we also look forward with faith to how many more will be transformed in the next generation. 

Today, women are healing from past abuse and resulting addictions; mothers are growing to be better caregivers to their children through our Mercy Mom’s Program and finding direction for their family’s future; men are breaking the cycle of addiction for themselves and their families. 

With so many overdoses--unnecessary deaths, the challenge has been more difficult than ever before. Without your help, these men and women from all walks of life would be back on the streets doing whatever is necessary to survive. 

There’s not a month that goes by that we don’t hear of somebody that has passed away because of the tormenting grip of addiction. 

But we press forward knowing that there is a different outcome when we allow the love of God to change our minds and change our hearts. 

Your support has proven that someone cares and is providing them with healthy options. 

Thank you from the New Life Family! 

We are grateful that you have taken the time to help other families impacted by trafficking, trauma, and substance use disorders. Your continued support gives them a safe place to call home.
