“God made us to work together and
gave us the body of Christ as our model”
1 Cor 12:12-31
For over 30 years, New Life Charity has been enabling people in the North Wellington area of Ontario to gain access to the counselling services they need, by subsidizing the cost for them with funds raised through charitable donations. Throughout this time, we have had the privilege of supporting thousands of people on their journey of healing and restoration. Meanwhile, just slightly further south of us, By Peaceful Waters has been providing comprehensive counselling services across Southwestern Ontario for over 15 years now.
In 2014, New Life Charity and By Peaceful Waters began working towards a partnership that would combine our respective strengths (and our common love for helping people) to better serve our communities. By bringing these two organizations – or “streams” – together, we have created a stronger, unified body to assist individuals, couples and families who are financially unable to access help on their own.
New Life Charity now extends the reach of its subsidized services by leveraging the existing infrastructure of By Peaceful Waters. This includes a clinical supervisor, formalized policies, professional membership oversight, and 20+ staff members in more than 18 locations in Southwestern Ontario. Donors now have the flexibility to support their local region and/or to support growth into new communities that may lack services.
Donated funds are managed by New Life Charity (a Registered Charity since 1985), while counselling services are delivered through By Peaceful Waters. This unique partnership enables both organizations to remain independent entities, allowing for greater accountability to donors while ensuring uncompromised service.
