More about New Life…
NLCH received children upon the court order of a judge in a consultation with the attorney generals office. Upon arrival we pray with and for each child and begin the process of assessing their condition and immediate needs. This includes gathering as much historical information as possible and performing preliminary physical and psychological examinations. During the first few weeks children get to know their house parents, support staff and the other children who lives in the home. In addition our wellness staff (social workers, nurses, psychologists and pastors) work together to identify and meet the child’s long term needs. Many of our children live with us throughout their childhoods and into early adulthood, finishing their education, gaining practical life skills and being disciplined is important to us.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after the orphans in their distress.
– James 1:27
