A legacy of change: New Life Center
celebrates 25 years of service
It takes 25 years to realize the true legacy of a group
of women and a project that started through passion
and determination to change how victims of domestic
violence receive service. Today, thousands of families and
generations are living lives free from violence, but reaching
this point was not easy. The history of New life Center
is a unique story. Despite obstacles in its 25 year history,
New Life Center has been continuously nurtured by the
West Valley community to become a primary provider of
domestic violence services in the state of Arizona. In every
way, New Life Center has fulfilled its mission of “Saving
lives, building futures…empowering women and children
escaping domestic violence.”
New Life Center began as a vision of members of the
Soroptimist International Club of Estrella. In the spring of
1986, members of the Club attended a regional conference
in California where they received a heart changing
presentation about the widespread nature of domestic
violence and the critical need for shelters nationwide.
With this heightened awareness of domestic violence,
the Soroptimist International Club of Estrella committed
to take the lead in establishing an emergency shelter in
western Maricopa County. Through tremendous research,
political and legal challenges, and community involvement,
the Soroptimist Club members, led by their President Nan
Raine, accomplished their mission.
On October 7, 1991 New Life Center officially opened its
doors and welcomed the first residents. In the last 25 years,
lives have been saved and futures transformed. Teens who
sought refuge with their mothers now have families of their
own. That next generation of children represents the true
legacy of New Life Center – a generation that domestic
violence will not touch.
Director's Message
2015... what made the difference?
The first quarter of the year is an opportunity to look back at
what has been accomplished and look forward to the work that
needs to be done in the coming year. 2015 proved to be a year
of change for New Life Center, but we remained true to our
mission and our core service of providing safety and shelter to
victims of domestic violence.
Included in this quarter’s newsletter is our annual report. My hope is that this
gives our supporters a clear picture of the work being done on our shelter cam-
pus and throughout the west valley every day. Our annual report demonstrates
in numbers what we know to be true – this work cannot be done without your
support and what you are supporting is life-saving and life-changing work. In
2015, volunteers dedicated a staggering 13,567 hours of service to support New
Life Center. Individual giving accounted for 11% of our total revenue for the
year and 77.4% of expenses went directly to programs and services.
Those programs and services provided 24,221 bed nights of safety to 572
women and children fleeing for their lives. Family advocates led 3,240 hours of
group advocacy for women and children sharing information on the cycle of
domestic violence, parenting skills, budgeting, and job readiness. Children
learned how to handle emotions in a healthy way through pet, art, and music
therapy.
Individual advocacy is the cornerstone of emergency shelter service. More than
2,300 hours of individual advocacy were provided for moms and children help-
ing families set and attain short- and long-term goals toward independence
when they leave shelter. For those victims and survivors in the community that
may not need or be ready for shelter, New Life Center’s Outreach Program
provided support groups and individual advocacy to 290 residents across the
west valley.
Once again, our programs have proven their success. While all of these numbers
show a clear picture of the life-changing work being accomplished at New Life
Center each day, the most important number is the 95% of families that come
through our doors and do not return to the abusive environments from which
they came. That is a number we are proud of, and that is a number you should
be proud of, because it would not be possible without your generosity and
continued support.
Thank you.

Celebrating 25 years
New Life Center was built on the backs of this community.
The dedication and passion of our supporters is what has
sustained this mission for the last 25 years. So, allow me to
take this moment to say thank you for all who have given and
continue to give to make this organization a leading provider
of shelter and services to domestic violence victims in the state of Arizona.
Last year, individual contributions accounted for 11% of our total operating
revenue. We rely on the generosity of our neighbors to continue this work and
we strive to recognize your generosity and our appreciation in meaningful ways.
One way we have developed to recognize our top supporters is our Brighter Day
Society. These supporters pledge to give $1,000 per year for 5 years or more to
ensure the continuation of this mission.
But, what does it mean exactly to be a part of the Brighter Day Society? It means
that you are featured in our newsletter as a top supporter and that you will receive
invitations to special events throughout the year held specifically for Brighter
Day Society members. But, most importantly, it means that you are a critical part
of our mission. It means that when 95% of families leave New Life Center and
do not return to the abusive situations from which they came, you can join us in
celebrating because you make that possible.
New Life Center is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year. That is a
milestone we would not have reached without the generosity of individuals in
our community. I hope you recognize how much we appreciate your support at
whatever level you can give and the impact you have on thousands of lives each
year. You truly are making a difference for generations.
If you are not yet a member of New Life Center’s Brighter Day Society I
encourage you to review your annual giving and consider making New Life
Center one of your top three supported charities. Please contact our Community
Development Department for additional information or donate online at
www.newlifectr.org. Now more than ever we need your support.
Thank you for ensuring New Life Center remains strong for the next 25 years!

Putting a flavorful twist on
donated items
Because of our faithful donors,
NLC receives a generous amount of
donated food items. Perishable and
non-perishable food donations help
keep the pantry stocked with delicious
foods that range from frozen pancakes,
spaghetti sauces and fresh fruits, to tasty
desserts, condiments and seasonings. To
maximize the use of the donated foods,
NLC volunteer, culinary artist, Jeff
Hinton, will help design a food guide
to incorporate preparing the donated
food items in a creative and delicious
way. The food guide will allow NLC
to provide fun foodies while following
government mandated nutritional food
guides.
This season the youth will grow their
own gourds. Each youth will receive
gourd seeds to plant, and a designated
area on campus to cultivate their
garden. They will also make leather
cowrie bracelets. The activities are
designed to build group cohesiveness,
introduce horticulture, and demonstrate
how natural elements from the earth
can bring beauty to the world in which
we live.
Free Arts of Arizona is back on
campus. This time, Art Instructor,
Keith Johnson will be introducing the
youth to art projects that teach the
importance of horticulture. The lesson
plans are designed to stimulate both
the creative side and logical side of the
brain. Often referred to as the right and
left side of the brain. In past lesson
plans the children were given gourds to
create beaded musical instruments.
Did somebody
say
meatballs?
In March, volunteers from
Kiwanis Club of Litchfield Park,
DreamCityChurchofGlendale,andDavid
Schwake, NLC board member, came
together as part of the RSVP Program to
prepare a delicious spaghetti and meatball
dinner for the residents. The dinner was
served restaurant style and the residents
loved the experience. RSVP (Respectfully
Serving Valuable People) is a volunteer
program, during which time the volunteers
visit with residents of the Center, facilitate
an activity for the children, and provide a
delicious meal that includes a side dish,
drink, and dessert.
NLC reaching out to teens about domestic violence
spreading the message...Love is not abuse

$ 85,866 was raised through
the Arizona Tax Credits!
With nearly $86,000 being raised through the Arizona Tax Credit,
New Life Center will be able to continue our mission of empowering
women and children to live free from violence. Your support made the
difference!
In February, during National Teen
Dating Violence Awareness and
Prevention Month, NLC reached
out to the community with support
materials and resources to shed
light on unhealthy teen dating
relationships. Teen dating violence
is a serious violation that can affect a
young person's safety, development,
andsenseofcomfort. Perpetratedbya
currentorpastintimatepartner,dating
violence takes many forms, including
physical, sexual, or emotional abuse,
and can occur in person or through
electronic communication and social
media. Violent dating relationships
can lead to depression, anxiety, drug
and alcohol use, and thoughts of
suicide.
Victims may continue to experience
detrimental effects throughout their
lives. In recent studies, more teens
have reported being physically hurt on
purpose, by a boyfriend or girlfriend.
Unhealthy relationships can start early
and last a lifetime. Teens often think
some behaviors, like teasing and name
calling, are a "normal" part of a rela-
tionship. However, these behaviors can
become abusive and develop into more
seriousformsofviolence.Themonthof
February provided a national and col-
lective measure to expose the situation,
and provide support to teens, parents,
and the community at large, about the
importance of developing healthy, re-
spectful relationships. Dating violence
can happen to any teen in a romantic,
dating, or sexual relationship, anytime,
anywhere. But it doesn't have to hap-
pen at all. NLC outreach team shared
information at local high schools, col-
leges, and at community events. To
learn more about teen dating violence
and how to promote healthy teen rela-
tionships please check the links below.

A legacy of change: New Life Center celebrates 25 years of service It takes 25 years to realize the true legacy of a group of women and a project that started through passion and determination to change how victims of domestic violence receive service. Today, thousands of families and generations are living lives free from violence, but reaching this point was not easy. The history of New life Center is a unique story. Despite obstacles in its 25 year history, New Life Center has been continuously nurtured by the West Valley community to become a primary provider of domestic violence services in the state of Arizona. In every way, New Life Center has fulfilled its mission of “Saving lives, building futures…empowering women and children escaping domestic violence.” New Life Center began as a vision of members of the Soroptimist International Club of Estrella. In the spring of 1986, members of the Club attended a regional conference in California where they received a heart changing presentation about the widespread nature of domestic violence and the critical need for shelters nationwide. With this heightened awareness of domestic violence, the Soroptimist International Club of Estrella committed to take the lead in establishing an emergency shelter in western Maricopa County. Through tremendous research, political and legal challenges, and community involvement, the Soroptimist Club members, led by their President Nan Raine, accomplished their mission. On October 7, 1991 New Life Center officially opened its doors and welcomed the first residents. In the last 25 years, lives have been saved and futures transformed. Teens who sought refuge with their mothers now have families of their own. That next generation of children represents the true legacy of New Life Center – a generation that domestic violence will not touch.
  • 2. Director's Message 2015... what made the difference? The first quarter of the year is an opportunity to look back at what has been accomplished and look forward to the work that needs to be done in the coming year. 2015 proved to be a year of change for New Life Center, but we remained true to our mission and our core service of providing safety and shelter to victims of domestic violence. Included in this quarter’s newsletter is our annual report. My hope is that this gives our supporters a clear picture of the work being done on our shelter cam- pus and throughout the west valley every day. Our annual report demonstrates in numbers what we know to be true – this work cannot be done without your support and what you are supporting is life-saving and life-changing work. In 2015, volunteers dedicated a staggering 13,567 hours of service to support New Life Center. Individual giving accounted for 11% of our total revenue for the year and 77.4% of expenses went directly to programs and services. Those programs and services provided 24,221 bed nights of safety to 572 women and children fleeing for their lives. Family advocates led 3,240 hours of group advocacy for women and children sharing information on the cycle of domestic violence, parenting skills, budgeting, and job readiness. Children learned how to handle emotions in a healthy way through pet, art, and music therapy. Individual advocacy is the cornerstone of emergency shelter service. More than 2,300 hours of individual advocacy were provided for moms and children help- ing families set and attain short- and long-term goals toward independence when they leave shelter. For those victims and survivors in the community that may not need or be ready for shelter, New Life Center’s Outreach Program provided support groups and individual advocacy to 290 residents across the west valley. Once again, our programs have proven their success. While all of these numbers show a clear picture of the life-changing work being accomplished at New Life Center each day, the most important number is the 95% of families that come through our doors and do not return to the abusive environments from which they came. That is a number we are proud of, and that is a number you should be proud of, because it would not be possible without your generosity and continued support. Thank you.

  • 3. Join Us Celebrating 25 years New Life Center was built on the backs of this community. The dedication and passion of our supporters is what has sustained this mission for the last 25 years. So, allow me to take this moment to say thank you for all who have given and continue to give to make this organization a leading provider of shelter and services to domestic violence victims in the state of Arizona. Last year, individual contributions accounted for 11% of our total operating revenue. We rely on the generosity of our neighbors to continue this work and we strive to recognize your generosity and our appreciation in meaningful ways. One way we have developed to recognize our top supporters is our Brighter Day Society. These supporters pledge to give $1,000 per year for 5 years or more to ensure the continuation of this mission. But, what does it mean exactly to be a part of the Brighter Day Society? It means that you are featured in our newsletter as a top supporter and that you will receive invitations to special events throughout the year held specifically for Brighter Day Society members. But, most importantly, it means that you are a critical part of our mission. It means that when 95% of families leave New Life Center and do not return to the abusive situations from which they came, you can join us in celebrating because you make that possible. New Life Center is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year. That is a milestone we would not have reached without the generosity of individuals in our community. I hope you recognize how much we appreciate your support at whatever level you can give and the impact you have on thousands of lives each year. You truly are making a difference for generations. If you are not yet a member of New Life Center’s Brighter Day Society I encourage you to review your annual giving and consider making New Life Center one of your top three supported charities. Please contact our Community Development Department for additional information or donate online at www.newlifectr.org. Now more than ever we need your support. Thank you for ensuring New Life Center remains strong for the next 25 years!

Perishable and non-perishable food donations help keep the pantry stocked with delicious foods that range from frozen pancakes, spaghetti sauces and fresh fruits, to tasty desserts, condiments and seasonings. To maximize the use of the donated foods, NLC volunteer, culinary artist, Jeff Hinton, will help design a food guide to incorporate preparing the donated food items in a creative and delicious way. The food guide will allow NLC to provide fun foodies while following government mandated nutritional food guides. This season the youth will grow their own gourds. Each youth will receive gourd seeds to plant, and a designated area on campus to cultivate their garden. They will also make leather cowrie bracelets. The activities are designed to build group cohesiveness, introduce horticulture, and demonstrate how natural elements from the earth can bring beauty to the world in which we live. Free Arts of Arizona is back on campus. This time, Art Instructor, Keith Johnson will be introducing the youth to art projects that teach the importance of horticulture. The lesson plans are designed to stimulate both the creative side and logical side of the brain. Often referred to as the right and left side of the brain. In past lesson plans the children were given gourds to create beaded musical instruments. Did somebody say meatballs? In March, volunteers from Kiwanis Club of Litchfield Park, DreamCityChurchofGlendale,andDavid Schwake, NLC board member, came together as part of the RSVP Program to prepare a delicious spaghetti and meatball dinner for the residents. The dinner was served restaurant style and the residents loved the experience. RSVP (Respectfully Serving Valuable People) is a volunteer program, during which time the volunteers visit with residents of the Center, facilitate an activity for the children, and provide a delicious meal that includes a side dish, drink, and dessert.
  • 5. NLC reaching out to teens about domestic violence spreading the message...Love is not abuse BigSpringClean $ 85,866 was raised through the Arizona Tax Credits! With nearly $86,000 being raised through the Arizona Tax Credit, New Life Center will be able to continue our mission of empowering women and children to live free from violence. Your support made the difference! In February, during National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month, NLC reached out to the community with support materials and resources to shed light on unhealthy teen dating relationships. Teen dating violence is a serious violation that can affect a young person's safety, development, andsenseofcomfort. Perpetratedbya currentorpastintimatepartner,dating violence takes many forms, including physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, and can occur in person or through electronic communication and social media. Violent dating relationships can lead to depression, anxiety, drug and alcohol use, and thoughts of suicide. Victims may continue to experience detrimental effects throughout their lives. In recent studies, more teens have reported being physically hurt on purpose, by a boyfriend or girlfriend. Unhealthy relationships can start early and last a lifetime. Teens often think some behaviors, like teasing and name calling, are a "normal" part of a rela- tionship. However, these behaviors can become abusive and develop into more seriousformsofviolence.Themonthof February provided a national and col- lective measure to expose the situation, and provide support to teens, parents, and the community at large, about the importance of developing healthy, re- spectful relationships. Dating violence can happen to any teen in a romantic, dating, or sexual relationship, anytime, anywhere. But it doesn't have to hap- pen at all. NLC outreach team shared information at local high schools, col- leges, and at community events. To learn more about teen dating violence and how to promote healthy teen rela- tionships please check the links below. http://www.loveisrespect.org/ https://thatsnotcool.com/ The Big Spring Clean: A time to refresh and renew Saturday, April 9, volunteers will come together for New Life Center Big Spring Clean − an annual gathering where volunteers step out of their normal volunteer routine and come together to complete projects around the campus.

  • 11. Saluting our Exceptional Community Partners...going the extra mile! The Exceptional Community Partner Program is New Life Center’s way of showing our appreciation for those organizations and foundations in our community who have chosen to take a stand against domestic violence and show their support for the mission of New Life Center. The organizations and foundations have become a part of the program by financially supporting the Center with a financial gift of at least $2,500. These funds are used to directly support the mission of New Life Center and will support the women and children who are escaping domestic violence. While we know organizations and foundations do not support our mission simply for recognition, out of our sincere appreciation we would like to say thank you to our ECP supporters. Thank you for going the extra mile to make the mission of NLC possible. Featured below are the companies that are now part of NLC Exceptional Community Partner program. For more information on becoming an ECP please contact New Life Center Community Development Director, Kelli Hernandez at (623) 932-4404. Just for the moms...A special treat on Mother's Day! NLC is getting ready for Mother's Day. Aspecial dinner, prepared by volunteers, will be presented to our resident women Sunday, May 8. The children are busy creating cards and special gifts to present to their moms at the dinner. The mothers will also receive a gift pass to shop the Brighter Day Boutique for an outfit and accessories to wear to the special occassion. Each mom will be seated at her own table, surrounded by her children, and the gifts they created for her. Food service will be family style. NLC is currently accepting table cloth donations for the event. This room has been adopted in memory of Dottie Allen “Service Above Self” Rotary Club tribute to Dottie Allen In March, members of the Rotary Club came together on the campus of NLC to honor Dottie Allen, a dedicated Rotary Club member and outstanding supporter of New Life Center who passed in 2014. Ms. Allen was one of the Centers first community advocates. She has committed countless volunteer hours to NLC since the opening of its doors in 1991. In memory of Dottie Allen, the club members held a dedication ceremony, and a special engraved plaque was hung on one of their adopted casitas, officially naming the room "The Dottie Allen Casita". They worked hard all day to beautify all three of their adopted casitas, providing fresh paint, wall decorations, new linens, and a lot of love. Thank you Rotary Club for your all of your hard work!
