Vocational Training

One significant means of fulfilling the mission at NLFY is our Vocational Training Program. Through a series of daily, supervised work assignments the students grow through performance as part of their recovery and therapy strategy. NLFY staff members mentor students through the process of reforming and maturing their character, overcoming addictive patterns of behavior, adopting productive work habits, and instilling in them a sense of excellence.

By shopping at our stores and using our service you provide training for our students while helping provide resources for our homes.

100% of the profits go to job training and life restoration at New Life For Youth.  We help men and women who lack the job skills to gain employment as a result of addiction or abuse. FFC builds self-esteem and character, while empowering these young people to believe in themselves.


We focus on teaching students how to perform the tasks that would be required of them in the workforce in various fields such as retail management, maintenance, delivery, pricing, design and display. FFC has created the partnerships with local retail stores who then hire the student upon graduation.

FFC also donates furniture as individuals in need. In our repair shop furniture that is received through donations is repaired, painted, re-upholstered and priced reasonably our store.
