At NEW LIFE MISSION, values, policies, and procedures have been established to serve everyone to the best of our abilities. Everyone is asked to check-in at the information desk. Here our staff can answer your questions and direct you to the appropriate ministry. The information desk also serves as a reference center, directing needs outside the realm of NLM to other agencies and organizations.

The Community Cafe serves hot meals Monday thru Thursday 12:00-1:30 and bag lunches Saturdays 12:00-1:30. Volunteers serve and help prepare the meals.
