New Life Children's Home

Children in Crisis... to Children in Christ


Orphaned, abandoned, and abused children have found a refuge and safe haven at New Life Children's Home in Villa Nueva, Guatemala. NLCH is truly a “home” where the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of children are addressed. Special attention is given to introducing them to Jesus Christ, nurturing and discipling them in a relationship with Him, and providing each child with a sound academic Christian education. Since 1976, NLCH has been blessed with the opportunity to help turn children in crisis to children in Christ!


God is in his holy Temple. He is a father to orphans. He defends the widows. God gives the lonely a home. -Ps. 68:5-6a (Intl Children’s Bible)

sponsor a child at nlch

For just $35 each month, can sponsor a child at New Life Children's Home.  Your tax-deductible contribution helps to provide: food and clean water, medical/dental care, a Christ-centered education, important life-skills training and a home environment where Jesus is the center!


Due to the complex adoption laws in Guatemala, thousands of children are not afforded the opportunity to live in a loving and safe family environment. These children suffer abuse, neglect, and trauma. Since 1976 NLCH has been and continues to be a "family" for hundreds of these precious ones, providing healing for past wounds and hope for the future.

NLCH History

New Life Children's Home (NLCH) was established in Villa Nueva, Guatemala in 1976 by Dr. Fred Jarvis, the founding president of New Life Advance International (NLAI), formerly known as New Life League International.  

NLCH is a very special place where children are rescued from abuse, abandonment or abject poverty from some of Guatemala’s worst slums. At NLCH, each child receives 24-hour-a-day loving care, a Christian education and discipleship. Here, they experience the love and joy of Jesus Christ.
