Nolan and Julia Vockrodt were born in Tulsa, OK and married in 1973.  Together they founded New Life Children’s Home in March, 1990 after a mission trip to the Philippines.  Nolan was so affected by the poverty he knew he could not turn a blind eye to the need for the basics, food, clothing and shelter for these impoverished children.  Partnering with a native Filipino couple they began an orphanage that would see more than 100 children pass through and be recipients of their basic needs as well as medical attention, education a home like atmosphere and most importantly love.
