New Life Village
At New Life Village we will provide youth aging out of foster care with safe, clean, and practical independent living structures in a small community setting. By teaming up with like-minded community leaders, we will provide professional and volunteered lead resources that support their journey with dignity, love, excellence, and compassion. Our goal is to inspire them to change the world for others as they prosper.
Approximately 20,000 Children phase out of foster care each year in the United States.
20% Of the youth will become homeless the day that they foster out. That is 4,000 children left alone with nothing. More than 1,200 Children will phase out of the foster care system this year in Texas alone. 1/2 Of the phased-out youth will not have found gainful employment by the age of 24. Less than 3% Of these children will earn a college degree at any point in their life. 7 out of 10 Girls who age out of the foster care system will become pregnant before the age of 21.

Both are successful in their own right and with over 12 years of combined experience in Foster Care, and transitional Foster Care.
We want to assist youth in developing the skills necessary to function as independent adults. We will provide training in various disciplines. Training will include but not be limited to:
