Walking in victory

Our Founder, Angela Harris, once endured the difficult process that the women she now serves experience and came out of the storm victorious. She wants the same end result for the women of New Life Transitional Home. Her journey from broken to healed to healthy had many twists and turns some due to external factors outside of her control and other due to her own bad decisions. Through it all, she never gave up on herself and fought hard to reclaim her life.

Angela's path to independence started when she made the choice to take her life back. Many individuals and organizations played pivotal roles along the way, in particular Lydia House, a ministry of First Orlando Baptist Church where Angela received the encouragement and support she needed to overcome addiction and step out on her own. Soon after her discharge from Lydia House, Angela quickly realized there was much more to be done and began to chart the gaps in care at this stage of recovery. 

Out of her own frustration and pain of losing her first son - Pierre Harris - to substance abuse, New Life Transitional Home was birthed. In his honor, Angela was laser focused on creating a program to offer a safe place for women to provide a long-term difference in a community that suffers from short-term results and dangerous repetitive patterns. 

Angela has overcome many obstacles including drug addition, sexual trauma and the loss of her parental rights. She has fought hard in succeeding in her life and seeks to extend a hand, as well as, being influential to women in recovery  who have temporarily fallen and are trying to reclaim their lives.
