Broken relationships, job loss, lack of education, and drug and alcohol addiction are common obstacles our homeless neighbors face every day.

Over time, these struggles can become their new normal, until all they can see in themselves is brokenness, hardship and failure, leading them to believe they will never be able to make changes. In the New Life Program, we equip men to overcome these challenges and develop a renewed sense of hope and identity.


Building a New Life

In our New Life Program, we help participants overcome the day-to-day challenges of homelessness and addiction through:

  • Case management
  • Christian counseling
  • Spiritual development
  • Work therapy
  • Life-skills education
  • Accountability
  • Job readiness
  • Financial management training
  • Cultivating healthy relationships
  • Medical and dental services

The New Life Program lasts 1-2 years, and while in the program, some participants earn their GEDs and go on to higher education. Some qualifying participants even receive a vehicle when they graduate.

“Recovery doesn’t happen by chance. It happens by choice. The idea of being a new creation in Christ has been playing out a lot in my life. It’s tempting to think that I’m defined by my addiction. My addiction is part of what made me who I am, but that’s not who I am now. The truth of that is really strong and important to me.”

— Morgan, New Life Program Graduate
