New Village Foundation uses its resources to help equip and empower others to live a healed, productive, self-sufficient life they never thought possible...
We are a Life-Equipping Organization designed to help people through life trauma:
Fostering healing so they can be focused and productive
Enabling vocational education with scholarships
Equipping and mentoring so people are prepared to enter and thrive in a head-of-household career that can support a family on one job.
In partnership with NVI Trade Schools, the New Village Foundation identifies individuals who would benefit from a scholarship to attend these schools.
This opportunity can provide the opportunity to develop a skill set to secure a higher paying salary in an underemployed industry.
We coordinate with the NVI Trade Schools to maintain vehicles that can be provided to those people identified as in need of transportation to get to their jobs.
In partnership with NVI, the New Village Foundation will identify individuals or families in need of transitional housing while under-employed, allowing for opportunities to purchase a first home with new career income.
