Where We Serve
New Life Children’s Center (Canyon Lake, Texas) is a children’s treatment center working to restore emotional well being and help the resident girls develop appropriate coping skills on the their journey of healing from severe physical abuse and neglect. Most of these girls will never return home, it isn’t safe. The average length of treatment is 6 months, but the girls can stay as long as 18 months if needed. Once they are well enough to leave New Life, the girls will hopefully be placed with adoptive parents or placed in the foster care system.
Chicktime New Life believes that EVERY girls needs support from those who love her and we enter their lives as caring members of the community focused on their restoration and just doing what we can to bring a bright spot to their lives.
