St. Luke N.E.W. Life Center Mission Statement
St. Luke N.E.W. Life Center is a faith-based environment providing life skills, education and workplace training, empowering women and men to become self-sufficient.
WHAT WE DO
We are committed to building trusting and enduring relationships with families who receive assistance through our programs. To receive support from NEW Life, an individual must have a genuine desire to change his or her situation and must regularly participate in activities for the duration of the program in which he or she is enrolled.
In addition to employment preparation programs, we also operate two social enterprises, a food pantry that serves over 3,000 people monthly, and a variety of community services, including crisis intervention, childcare, and a literacy center. These services are critical to the success of our workforce programming, as they provide participants with additional wrap-around services required to support their families as well as real-world experience during the program. Furthermore, our community services help us build trust with people in the community, that ultimately move on to enroll in programs that address generational poverty. Many of the people in our employment preparation programs and social enterprises were introduced to NEW Life through our food pantry or crisis intervention services.
