Making a New Life Possible
New Life Children’s Center in Canyon Lake – a residential treatment center for severely troubled girls ages 11-17 – addresses treatment for emotional disorders due to abuse and neglect. These children arrive at New Life with serious emotional and behavioral disorders stemming from past trauma. Beyond the basic needs of shelter, clothing and food, New Life has given more than 2,000 girls a safe place to heal since 1993.
Almost all of the girls who arrive at New Life’s tranquil country setting are coming directly from foster homes, with behaviors too intense and disruptive for their foster parents to handle. Many have had several foster care placements before Texas Child Protective Services (CPS) places them at New Life. The Hill Country campus with home-like dormitories and specialized trauma therapy help restore a sense of hope for their futures.
New Life provides a level of care that is unique and faith-inspired – enabling staff to deliver a heart-driven, clinically based program that leads abused children on a courageous and hopeful path of healing. We know that providing a safe and stable place for these young girls to heal will improve the chances of success and reunification with their families.
New Life offers:
- Intensive, individualized and group therapy.
- On-campus education through Trinity Charter Schools.
- Preparation for adult living.
- Structured recreation – indoor gym, swimming, animal care, art and more.
- Spiritual care – chapel services and Bible study.
Humana House is a multi-purposed residential building where families of the girls can stay for longer visits, allowing them to participate more in their child’s treatment – improving the chances of success and future reunification.
Many families, due to geographical or financial restrictions, don’t have the means to stay for longer visits and Humana House helps bridge this gap.
New Life is grateful for the support of our great community partners. We would like to thank Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce, Comal County Master Gardeners, Canyon Lake Optimists Club and Pilot Club Canyon Lake for their continued support.
