Established in 1987, the New Life Center serves young ethnic minority (tribal) women who are at risk for, or survivors of, human trafficking, forced labor and sexual abuse. NLCF residents are provided with shelter, education, vocational and life skills training and legal assistance. Special therapeutic activities for survivors include comprehensive art, dance and music therapy and individual counseling.
With degrees in development and Christian theology, Jeni will provide administrative support, Christian discipleship and financial literacy training to NLCF staff and program beneficiaries. In partnership with the NLCF's senior staff, she will write grants, oversee the monitoring and evaluation of program outcomes and assist with public relations.
