Life Skills Education
Each family works with a Case Manager to create an individualized care plan for life skills training. We are a back-to-work transitional program, committed to helping homeless moms become self-sufficient. Classes are geared toward strengthening families and include instruction on:
- financial literacy
- bible study
Other life skills instruction includes:
- how to dress for success
- problem-solving and critical thinking
- basic computer skills
- time management
- auto maintenance
Our families are offered all the physical, spiritual, intellectual tools and resources needed to get out of poverty, off government assistance, and create a better future for themselves and their children.
New Life Mission moms have earned their GEDs, some have been licensed in the fields of Cosmetology, EKG/Phlebotomy, Medical Coding & Billing, Massage Therapy, Insurance, Child Care, Medical Assistance, Certified Nursing Assistance, and other careers.
More than 90% of our graduates have continued their living wage jobs and remain part of the New Life Mission family. Many alumnae return to offer encouragement to our new students.
