The Elmhurst/ Corona area is one of the poorest, most densely populated, diverse neighborhoods of NYC.
The New Life CDC’s mission is to meet the needs and cultivate the strengths of the poor and marginalized in Central Queens through community building and a demonstration of the love of God. We believe in breaking cycles of poverty and academic failure while creating cycles of new life.
Our vision is a community that unleashes a movement of young and adult leaders who are equipped with the personal, academic and professional skills needed to succeed in life. Because we believe that lasting and positive community development depends on building upon the resources and successes of the community, we aim to inspire a culture of “giving back” for the people we come in contact with through our programs.
