About New Life Recovery Ministries

For over thirty years New Life has been helping women leave their life controlling problems by restoring dignity and promoting physical, spiritual, and emotional healing through its in-residence Christian discipleship program.

Graduates have gone on to thriving careers in ministry, administration, counseling, community leadership, with many starting their own families.

Under the leadership of the Executive Director, New Life has cast a bold vision to build a new campus featuring modern facilities in an idyllic rural setting in Belleville, Ontario. The Help Us Open the Doors $5 million capital campaign is being launched to develop a 42-acre site that will be home to up to twenty female residents and staff initially, with a vision to start a twin program for men in the future.
