Nueva Vida is a center of assistance for girls with harsh backgrounds. It has been an after-school program for several years. Before then, it was an internship house for 10 or 12 girls who lived in the house from Monday to Friday and went home on the weekends. The Nueva Vida administrators realized that they could help more community members as an after-school program; today they serve 27 girls.
IWC members serve the center in various ways, the most outstanding of which is a rocking annual Christmas party.
