New Life For Youth is a residential, Christian-based training center for people with life-controlling problems. We are a non-profit organization that has helped change the lives of countless people from all over the United States and Puerto Rico. Our spiritual program helps those from all walks of life, many whom have struggled with alcohol, drug addiction and other life controlling issues for much of their lives.

The purpose of New Life is not only to save, but to change lives. We are showing men and women there is hope by encouraging their education in the areas of academic and Biblical studies. We are preparing them to be more productive members in the community through a strong foundation in the Word of God and a proper understanding of Christian principles. This enables them to become contributing members of their families and communities, bringing the strength of Christ and the message of salvation to the World.

New Life For Youth has been reaching out to addicted women since 1971.  During the Mercy House program women are given the love, care and support to overcome addiction, abuse, eating disorders, self harm and sexual trafficking.  This Christ-centered program is a comprehensive solution for the drug epidemic.  The Mercy Moms House gives restored mothers an opportunity to be reconnected with their children in a safe and supportive environment.




Rosalinda Rivera and her husband Carlos Rivera are associate pastors of New Life Outreach International Church in Richmond, VA Founded by Victor and Carmen Torres, New Life is a vibrant community of believers from over 40 countries.  With a passion for outreach, evangelism and world missions New Life Outreach International is now the mother to other churches in New York, Alabama, in Fredericksburg, Virginia, in Ghana, West Africa, Dominican Republic, and Peru. The vision is to take the gospel message to every country of the world and throughout the United States, making disciples and planting new ministries of outreach to the glory of God.


A partnership is several people joining together to accomplish a task or meet a need that is greater than what they could do on their own. Being a partner with Rosalinda Rivera Ministries is as simple as making a commitment to regularly support the ministry through your giving and prayer. Most people choose to give monthly, however, you may choose weekly or another option.

There is no dollar figure necessary to become a Rosalinda Rivera Ministries partner. Many people don’t have the time or the ability to travel around the world, but they are able to provide financial support—whatever the amount—and become a big part of reaching others for Christ.
