Community Opportunities

Community

At New Life, we believe in the importance of doing life together in community. This is why we are partnered with a few other organizations in the area.  Clients can earn Life Skill points for attending programs and events with these organizations. So far, we are partnered with Northwest Connection Family Resources, LCO Head Start, and FoodShare Employment and Training.  We are always looking for ways to develop new partnerships to offer more for our families. All of these events and programs are free.

Northwest Connection Family Resources offers play groups, parent cafes, and various learning opportunities each month. They are also a great resource for finding quality childcare or becoming licensed yourself.

LCO Head Start has great community events and family nights that they host on a regular basis.

FoodShare Employment and Training offers classes on job skills and resume building. They have people there to help you and coach you as you search for a job and learn new job skills. FSET can also provide transportation assistance, and help purchasing required uniforms for a new job.

If you would benefit from any of these resources, stop in or call the Center for more information. You must be signed up as a client to earn points. It’s a quick and easy process to get signed up!

For anyone interested, we also host a once a month event called the Picnic Table that is open to anyone. You do not have to be signed up as a client to attend, but must sign up if you want to earn points for attendance. The Picnic Table is a great way to meet families and do a craft. We also have volunteers that help with childcare so you can relax and get to know other families.
