People sometimes find themselves in trouble with their friends, their family and the law. Their drinking and/or drug abuse leads to broken relationships, broken lives and eventually in an alcohol and drug abuse center or as a guest in the State of Minnesota correctional system.

So a price is paid. Time is served. Then what?  Where do you go to fully recover, restore and rebuild?

New Creations may be that place. New Creations is a judgement-free environment that creates a path to restoration.  At New Creations, people restore their lives while restoring old and classic cars. We learn how to take care of our own body, while learning how to repair a quarter panel on a 1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe. We discover how to manage our inner thoughts while rebuilding a 426 Hemi. We are turning the old into the new; the battered and bruised into a new creation.

The founders of New Creations are experts in auto restoration. And mentors for life.

New Creations is located on a 10 acre farm located in the country. Quiet. Peaceful. A place to learn life’s lessons. A place to recover, restore and rebuild some pretty neat automobiles…and ourselves…at the same time. A place of forgiveness and the awareness that we’ve already been forgiven by our creator.

Our non-profit provides training through donations. These donations are tax deductible and a way to create a win-win that helps you and the future of those who want to become a contributor in our society. New creations is here to change the lives of our brothers and sisters for the better.
