About Our Organization

The New Life Center has been meeting needs and transforming lives through the love of Christ since 1907. We help people who are homeless and hurting go from merely surviving to truly thriving.

Our aim is to help them discover value and find hope.

Founded as the Glad Tidings Mission, the New Life Center has evolved from an organization that primarily conducted religious services and neighborhood outreach work to a Christian multi-faceted emergency and crisis service center.
