Ways to Give

Volunteer

The New Life Day Center operates almost entirely with volunteer staff. We can use volunteers to serve coffee and donuts in the kitchen, to help in the client check-in booth, to help with the personal locker process, to drive the van for transportation, and to clean the facility. Those interested in volunteering should call Debbie Farinelli, Volunteer Coordinator, at 859-721-2325 or send an email to [email protected].

New Life Day Center is seeking to significantly diversify our funding sources. Today, we are heavily reliant on individual donors and to a lesser extent, grants. While we have been successful with our annual President’s Supper as a large fundraiser, it can not sustain the entire Day Center as we continue to grow. In 2017 we are concentrating on broadening our donor base in new areas, specifically recurring micro-donors.
