Bethel House – Women’s Center
About The Program
Bethel House Women & Children’s Center is a 12-month long outreach ministry of New Creation Foundation Inc. (NCF), a recognized 501(c)3. NCRC is registered with the State of Texas as an exempt faith-based chemical dependency treatment program, Exemption Number FB3305.
For several years, the evidence has become more and more apparent, that there is a lack of residential facilities for young mothers, who are struggling with life-controlling issues, which can allow them to receive help and be able to keep their children with them. The Bethel House Women & Children’s Center will allow us to help the entire family!
Dad can enroll in our Men’s program while Mom and child are being helped in our Women and Children’s program, because in so many instances, both parents are caught up in a destructive lifestyle.
This allows us to fulfill our mission of bringing Christ-centered restoration and healing to individuals and families that have been
destroyed by chronic life-controlling issues or addictions such as: Behavior: anger, anxiety, depression, pornography, gambling; Substance: prescription medications, illicit drugs, alcohol, food; Relationships: co-dependent, unhealthy or enmeshed, while empowering them to become productive members of society.
It is the belief of this organization that learning is a cumulative experience, and this faith-based program can facilitate the cognitive development of the participants (students) through the framework of in-depth religious education, counseling and mentoring.
While it is hoped to attain a desired behavior, the ultimate goal of NCRC is to lead the student to a relationship with Christ, as this has been found in the faith-based community to be the determining factor in restoring someone to being a long-term and productive member of society.

Vernita McCrary entered Teen Challenge in 2003 lost and hopelessly addicted much like the women she mentors at the New Creation Bethel House. Miss V, a name the students have adopted over time, ultimately attended Teen Challenge Bible College in Jacksonville, Florida. In 2007 Miss V accepted God‘s calling on her life, accepting a leadership role at Teen Challenge, making her an influential figure in facilitating relationships with Jesus Christ.
In March of 2013, Miss V became a welcome addition to the New Creation Team and currently functions as the Women’s Program Coordinator.
Women's Residential Coordinator
Kim came to New Creation after becoming homeless due to many years of fighting addiction, identity crisis, and finally losing all hope. She found freedom through a true understanding of how much Jesus loved her right where she was. Kim has a passion to help women become free from their life-controlling issues by understanding who they are in Christ Jesus and who the Word of God says they are.
Kim serves as Residential Coordinator, overseeing the operations of our Bethel House campus as well as supervising house cleaning crews and most importantly, counseling and mentoring the women in our Bethel House program. You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good, what is now being done, the saving of many lives. Genesis 50:20
Jennifer entered the doors of New Creation in June of 2015 with the idea that she would get off of drugs and clean her life up, not knowing that it was the beginning of her becoming the Woman of God she was created to be. She now serves as Marketing Coordinator, managing our Thrift Store and scheduling fundraisers as well as counseling and mentoring the women in our Bethel House program. Jennifer brings her passionate love for God into every detail of her ministry. Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
The first step in getting help for drug addiction is having a desire in your heart for change in your life. Without this desire, true and lasting change cannot be achieved.

Things to Know
MEDICAL – The completed Health Screening Form is required before you can enter the New Creation Restoration program.

A Help Card is available from each campus to assist you with finding clinics in the surrounding area.
NON-REFUNDABLE INDUCTION FEE – The $1,250 induction fee will need to be discussed before program entry. While this fee does not pay for your entire stay at New Creation Restoration Center, it is necessary to help defray the initial costs during your first few weeks here. After the initial induction fee there will be a $300 per month program fee for the duration of the program. All fees are non-refundable.
RESIDENCY AVAILABILITY – Open beds are made available to new students on a first-come / first-served basis. If we are full, you may be placed on the waiting list. You must demonstrate a firm desire to come by having your Health Screening done and sent to our office, as well as by completing an interview.
If you are struggling with chronic substance abuse, or any other life-controlling problem, remove yourself from that environment. Easier said than done, right? But, if you are really serious about changing your life, you are going to need to do everything you can to stay away from alcohol and drugs, and away from the people that use them. That temptation is always going to be there, but for now you need to get as far away from it as possible until you build your faith to resist it. You are also going to need to find other people who are willing to help you and support you in your decision to change your life. Have you burned a lot of bridges getting to where you are today? God can restore those relationships, but it’s not going to happen overnight. Find the courage to tell others about your decision, and you will find someone that agrees and wants to help you. Five Things You Can Do Today
PRAY. Don’t ever underestimate the power of prayer. When you pray, you are establishing a relationship with God that will endure through the good days and the bad days.
READ THE BIBLE. The Bible is God’s Word that has been given to us all. Its contents are simple and deeper than you could ever imagine, and will help you in times of struggle. Reading the Bible gives you new insight on this world and the problems we all face.
SEEK FELLOWSHIP. Spending time with other Christians is an important part of the growing process in general, and is a great way to get some advice on the personal things you have going on in your life right now.
WRITE DOWN YOUR PLAN. You need to map out your game plan on paper. If you are really going to change your life, you must have a plan! These plans may change, but you need to have a plan to follow when you hit a weak point.
