New Life Children’s Center

Providing help, healing and hope to young girls, ages 11-17

New Life Children’s Center in Canyon Lake, Texas, is a safe haven where abused, neglected, and troubled young girls literally get a chance for a New Life. All the girls living at New Life arrive at our doorstep in need of a place to heal. Almost all of them come 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.

New Life’s tranquil country setting makes it feel a million miles away from the stress of urban life. The beautiful Hill Country campus, home-like dormitories, and specialized trauma therapy help restore a sense of hope for their futures. More than 2,000 young women, ages 11-17, have been cared for since New Life opened in 1993.

New Life girls experience a variety of activities as they overcome their emotional burdens and learn to appreciate having a healthy lifestyle. A typical day includes a balance of meaningful therapy sessions, academic classes, exercise, and socialization. New Life rewards and celebrates the girls’ successes, and since 1993, we’ve compiled a remarkable list of positive outcomes.
