The Family courthouse is a unique environment. Judges cannot talk to the families outside of the legal proceedings and attorneys often cannot provide families with the emotional support they need. Families often feel isolated, confused, angry, hurt, and helpless. The system can seem unfriendly...
New Day is provided office space at the Tarrant County Family Law Center. Services provided by chaplains include counseling, spiritual guidance, Bible and life skills classes, mediation, high-conflict parenting planning, and referrals to churches and other community services to extend care for families in crisis. God uses NewDay staff in our community to transfer hope by being a tangible expression of His love. As one of our fathers has observed, "You called me, approached me, were humble, courteous, and invited me in."
