Resident Testimonials

“As a senior, to live in New Life Village is like being offered a chance to remain “ forever young.” The contact with families and young children is a joyful challenge with many unexpected rewards. When I first came here, I had no idea what to expect. I have since discovered a caring loving community intent on giving the best of themselves to make the dream come true.”

Marie
Senior Resident

“Five years ago I drove by New Life Village, then under construction. I stopped in only to meet a very compassionate director who listened to our family’s story and shared how New Life Village might be a fit. I was in the process of adopting my 4 grandchildren. I prayed about the situation and God opened all the doors. We were accepted to New Life Village and have lived here for going on three years. I can’t express enough what a blessing it has been for us all to be a part of this community. The village does all come together as one. We have built a loving relationship with one another and we all go the extra mile to support each other in any and almost all circumstances. Our children, our seniors, all of us are heavenly sent to play our parts in fulfilling Sister Claire’s vision of “It takes a village” to raise our children. Our gated community and our family oriented neighborhood is truly a blessing! The learning center has also helped my children a great deal. And with four children, that’s no easy task.”
