Habitat for Humanity

We are excited to do God’s work with our hands right here in Will County. New Life has some select dates where we volunteer as a group. Those dates will be listed on our Events page. But there is always an opportunity to volunteer as an individual as well.

*Not currently available due to COVID For the past 20 years, we have provided a place for youth to receive help. These students between 2nd - 8th grade not only receive academic help but in many cases positive encouragement. Tutoring is typically offered on Tuesdays from 7:00-8:00 pm and Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30 pm. There is always a need for more tutors to ensure that there are no students left on the wait list.

Diaper Depot

In partnership with the United Way of Will County, our location provides free diapers and wipes for families in need. Volunteers can help bundle diapers or serve families on Sunday nights when Depot is open.
