About us

Finding Freedom

An inside look into how Novō Communities draws alongside people and helps them find freedom from addiction. Novō residents and staff share their own experience of being part of a Novō community.

Introducing our Padrinos

Novō depends on the generous support of individuals, churches, foundations, and businesses to accomplish its vision.

In Latino culture, Padrinos (or Godparents) are much more than honorific titles. Padrinos are involved in the lives of their godchildren in meaningful ways. By supporting Novō financially, you become a Novō Padrino, providing our residents with the precious opportunity to find freedom from addiction and recovery for life.

Our community in Bolivia

Novō’s community in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, opened its doors in November 2016, to help men find healing, wholeness, and hope. Today, the work runs effectively under local leadership and has a measurable impact.

Bolivia is an incredible country, with breathtaking scenery, engaging people, and amazing natural and human diversity. It is also one of the poorest countries in Latin America. And, one of the most unequal countries in the world.
