New Life Village is a unique concept, the only of its kind in the state of Florida. We are growing for a small start up non-profit to a mid-sized organization that is disrupting the foster care model for the good.
Founded in 2012 and located in Tampa, Florida which is heavily impacted by the affordable housing, opioid and foster care crises, NLV is an intentional, intergenerational community designed to support families raising adopted, kinship and foster children, many who have survived abuse, neglect, and trauma, offering them program-rich, below-market housing, and onsite wrap-around services. Senior citizens also live in the Village serving as surrogate grandparents, tutors and mentors to these children. The Village promotes permanency, community, and caring relationships, while offering safety and meaningful purpose with an onsite Wellness, Resilience and Character Development Program. It is an alternative to the isolation, trauma, and adversity that too many foster youth, their adoptive families, and aging elders endure. Our wholistic community approach leverages the power of place, permanence, and shared social purpose to improve residents’ housing stability, access to health resources, educational attainment, and community connection. We exist to reduce the number of children in foster care by encouraging more families to adopt or to prevent children from entering foster care. Currently, there are 104 residents at the Village, with 54 children and 50 caregivers and supportive seniors living on site. New Life Village is the only community of its kind in Florida! NLV was recognized by the Florida Civic Advance with the 2019 Honorable Mention FCA Civic Excellence Award for Intergenerational Civic Engagement. We focus on three areas that impact the local foster care system, affordable housing, the opioid crises and the foster care crises.
