After years of witnessing first-hand the uncertainty and instability that unfortunately, often pervades our child welfare system, Robert and Lisa Schloss decided to jump headfirst into the waters of change.
To create New Song; a place of refuge and revival for orphaned, impoverished and fatherless children throughout the state.
New Song is more than a safe, stable and compassionate home for children. It is a place of excellent education, spiritual growth and hopeful opportunity. From pottery and woodworking to equine therapy and 4-H involvement, New Song promises to utilize every bit of the scenic and diverse nature granted by its location.
Children ages six through twelve, who have yet to enter the child welfare system, but instead have been referred directly from their caregivers, will reside in one of the, soon to be, nine campus homes. Each of the 5,000 square foot homes will house eight children, as well as a mentor and set of permanent “house parents”. The hope is that these homes will provide long-term care for each child until they are able to transition to college, a trade school or into their career.
Hands of Hope is excited to begin our partnership with New Song orphanage! We are currently providing support through:
