Hope, Healing And New Beginnings.

For more than 63 years, it has been our mission to provide each and every child with a safe, loving and truly family like experience where they can find true hope, healing and new beginnings. Our entire family works to uncover the academic, social, emotional and Spiritual potential of abandoned, abused and at-risk children, helping to free them from the despair and hopelessness of a young life devastated by emotional trauma.

Our highly skilled, caring staff is trained to meet each child wherever they are emotionally and design a program that provides the warmth, support, safety and clinical experience to move them through the entire healing process.

The New Life campus is located on 40 picturesque acres in rural / suburban Northwestern Montgomery County, just 10 minutes from the Lansdale interchange of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Northeast Extension.

Our main campus in Schwenksville Pennsylvania serves shelter, court adjudicated, dependent or delinquent youth ranging in age from age 11- 21. Each of our six, warm and friendly cottages are fully staffed and secure with separate, age appropriate residential living for adolescent and teenage boys.

All students receive full clinical services which include individual, family and group counseling.

Residents enjoy the many amenities at New Life including access to our private school, vocational learning center, athletic field, baseball field, regulation size gymnasium, olympic pool, equestrian program and much, much more. Our spacious, commercial grade cafeteria / kitchen is supervised by the incredible Jen Heme, also head of the culinary program.
