All Things Made New was started by an Elementary School Teacher in Irving, TX who saw the need for support with the teenage girls in the area. Her desire is to support teenage girls to continue their education, respect themselves, create lasting relationships, and learn responsibility in every facet of their life. She has a passion for these girls and wants them all to succeed, no matter what their background may hold. She saw the need for mentoring in the middle school and knew she couldn’t do it all on her own. It started with a vision of God to make an impact in late 2012 and has grown beyond the initial dreams. It is humbling to see how All Things Made New has grown and the people God has allowed to cross paths with to further the mission of hope and encouragement.
All Things Made New started for middle school girls meeting the last Friday over every month at a City of Irving building and park. What was meant to be for middle school girls soon grew to also serve high school girls enduring similar situations. Over the course of 2 years, different meeting locations and growth, they opened their first facility located at 212 S. Main Street on April 21, 2015.
In 2016, All Things Made New expanded its organization to begin Iron Roots, a program that mirrors the mentoring program expect with boys as the focus. The girls group of All Things Made New was renamed to More than God, as their own specific program. In addition to all of this, we opened our Family Point program, serving families and the needs of the community. Our first program in Family Point was Café Con Leche. Café Con Leche serves mothers as a support system, a time discuss being a wife, mother, sister, friend, or caregiver.
