Providing holistic care for vulnerable children

Campus programs

Students enrolled at New Song live with supportive husband and wife married couples who provide the love and guidance children need in order to thrive. Our houseparents are carefully hired and trained to meet the needs of vulnerable children and joyfully serve as a calling through their Christian faith. 

Every part of our campus has been designed to meet all the needs of our children: academic, emotional, social, recreational, spiritual, health and developmental. 

Children live in attractive ranch-style homes with walkout basements. Each home includes a large living room, a spacious kitchen, seven bedrooms, and a study for counseling or homework. Up to seven kids live in each home. 

The following three key programs support our students:

Children in classroomAcademic Life Program

New Song’s on-site educational program, the New Song Leadership Academy, has been created utilizing advice and ideas from dozens of Indiana educators. Our strategy with students is to provide them with highly individualized instruction led by licensed teachers who are uniquely gifted and trained to work with students who have emotional and educational deficits.

One of the wonderful benefits for the children who live at New Song is the ministry’s scenic setting in the hills of Brown County. Our beautiful 100 acre campus includes several large homes, a recreational park, a pond for fishing and canoeing, a creek, and wooded trails for hiking and biking. At New Song, kids are provided with a wonderful environment in which to learn, live, and grow!

Living on the New Song campus helps kids develop a meaningful sense of belonging and also instills in them the importance of personal responsibility that comes from being an important member of a broader campus community. Recreational opportunities on campus include organized activities, informal games, hiking on trails, team sports, participating in the arts and music, developing personal hobbies, therapeutic physical activities, and simply relaxing in nature. Off-campus outings such as educational field trips, church youth group outings, and cultural experiences like local plays and musical concerts are also an important part of the kids’ experience at New Song. We believe that it is extremely valuable to provide kids with a wide variety of enriching activities to meet the developmental needs of children of all ages. 

Christian Discipleship Program

Children are growing up in America confused by the lack of values they see and experience in society. At New Song, we believe one of our primary roles is to teach our students godly character and principles. Through our Christian Discipleship Program, students learn about the Gospel of Jesus Christ which transforms lives. We are thankful to have the opportunity to provide biblical discipleship to the students in our care, and we have seen tremendous development in their lives as a result of this important foundational program.
