Knowing where to turn for help, information, and support is important. Here at The New Life Center, we hope we can provide those things for you and be the support you need.  You are important to us. Our trained mentors are here to listen to your concerns, answer questions you may have, and provide referrals for services that are beyond our scope.  

The New Life Center offers many types of services to help serve our community by providing education and resources to individuals and families. Services we currently provide include:

Professional Counseling/Therapy

Individual/Family Mentoring

Parenting Classes

Group Mentoring/Classes

Relationship Classes

Co-parenting Classes

Peer Support

Resource Referral Program

Scholarship Opportunities

Your trust is important to us.  When you visit The New Life Center, we want you to know your information is safe with us.


All information is kept in the strictest confidence except as required by law to report or when necessary to protect you, or others against a threat of harm.

After completing your intake paperwork, you will be paired with a trained volunteer, whom you will see each time you take a class.  Your volunteer is here to support you, listen to your concerns, and answer your questions.  The New Life Center's staff and volunteers' desire is to help you meet the challenges of life.  We do not have degrees in counseling, nor are we licensed by the state; therefore, the mentoring provided is not intended to be a substitute for professional counseling.

Earn while you learn!

Our earn while you learn program is a great way to learn while also earning points to use in our boutique upstairs! As an incentive for attending mentoring, parenting classes, and support groups, we offer points that can be used to exchange for personal and child-related supplies. These can include clothes, diapers, wipes, shampoo, laundry detergent, baby-needs, bottles, etc. 

Court Approved!

The Court-Approved Program is offered by The New Life Center free of charge and gives you the opportunity to develop parenting and coping skills in a program approved by our local court system.

Any parent that has been ordered by the court system or DCBS, has an open CPS case, or has had their lawyer suggest they take parenting classes participates in our Court-Approved Program.

If you need services beyond what we provide, we can recommend and refer you to additional organizations for further assistance.
