The Women’s Life House is designed to help and serve women in need. The Women’s Life House consists of three different types of programs. With Christ at the center, women in this program will work towards living a better and healthier life all around.
Every woman who comes to the Women’s Life House does so with a unique, complicated history. New Life Ministries has the experience to identify which conditions and circumstances support individual growth and which hinder it. The Women’s Life House Director will discuss each woman’s personal situation with her and assist in setting goals to resolve the crisis and move forward.
Women will attend life skill classes that focus on taking responsibility for choices. Depending on an individual’s needs, she may also finish requirements for a high school diploma or enroll in technical training to expand career options. Staff help the women find a job and work toward financial independence. Women are supported and coached as they develop a lifestyle that is physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally healthy.



The Women’s Life House can act as an emergency shelter for women escaping from an abusive or challenging situation. We can provide temporary food and shelter on a short term basis for ladies as they look for new living arrangements and help.

Step Up


The Step Up Program is our starter program for women who need help getting back on track. Individuals are provided with resources and assistance as needed, and the Women’s Life House acts as a safe place where they can “step up” to life’s challenges with the help they need.

Fresh Start


The Fresh Start Program is for women who need a longer stay to heal, overcome obstacles, and to find the skills that will help them in life. Women begin to learn about forgiveness, healing, love, and peace. They will learn confidence, leadership, responsibility, understanding consequences, and have the opportunity to learn to live a victorious life with Jesus.

“There is currently a gap in services for this population. We are seeing women in some desperate situations that put them and their children at risk for a constant cycle through the system and a life of instability. I am currently working with a woman who is unable to pay her bills and support her children due to being unable to find employment and the high cost of housing. A shelter that could help her move forward will keep her from being homeless.”

“I have worked and served as a bi-vocational pastor for over 14 years. Planting New Life Fellowship Church in 2001 was a huge undertaking. But it’s what God called us to do. God then lead us, as a church, to open a soup kitchen to feed people everyday. Now God has called us to open a women’s shelter. So that’s what we are doing. It’s never been about status, ego, or money. It’s always been about Jesus and it always will be about Jesus.”
