New Life Village (NLV) is an intergenerational community designed for families raising foster and adopted children. Our mission is to reduce the number of children in foster care by encouraging more families to adopt and by providing these adoptive families a loving, supportive place to call home. NLV residents have either adopted a child or are in the process.
NLV was founded by Sister Claire LeBoeuf, CSC of the Congregation of the Sisters of Holy Cross. Sister Claire has spent her entire adult life advocating for abused and neglected children. Several seniors also call NLV home and they serve as surrogate grandparents and volunteers to the children and the mission. We offer subsidized rent on town homes in our village to assist these families. Subsidized rent is offered to our residents as a way of assisting them in the adoption process.
