New Life Program for Women
As a residential school, Victory Trade School has been for men only. With the inclusion of Victory House in the Victory Trade School, we now have opportunities for women. Women may enter the one-year New Life Program; a Christian recovery program for women who have their High School Diploma or GED, with or without children.
If you do not possess your high school diploma or GED, click here for the Fast Track GED Program for Women.

Children and Visitors
Children are encouraged and welcome to come live with or visit their mothers while they are in the New Life Program. Because of room setup, only male children up to 8 years old and female children up to 10 years old are permitted to stay the night.
We offer in-house childcare services that teach women how to manage family and job responsibilities.
Below is an article Community Free Press published about the Victory House childcare.
