House of New Life was the recipient of a Hawaiian Tug and Barge, and Young Brothers Maui Community Advisory Grant, which will help fund the nonprofit's Academy Pearson Program.
This grant will assist in the acquisition of the computer program used to help students who are not able to continue their education through the regular public education system due to difficulties with addictions or other life-controlling problems.
House of New Life is an interdenominational, faith-based program formed in 2003 for young men aged 15 to 25 and their families. The program currently includes professional counseling, support groups, community training, drug prevention and parenting classes.
A residential facility opened in Kula in September 2012.
The academy is currently accepting applications for new students for the spring 2013 semester. Boarding and non-boarding positions are available. Interested parties should contact House of New Life at (808) 281-8163 for more information and to apply.
