Family Lifeline brings health and hope into the home
We partner with individuals and families at critical points in their lives to strengthen overall well-being and independence by delivering intensive home and community-based services.Our Impact
We help families with young children:
We help older adults & persons with disabilities:
Our premise is straightforward — strengthening families provides a foundation for success, two generations at a time.
Family Lifeline works to solve the root of problems, building on assets, and creating lasting impact. All of our services are prevention-focused, strengths-based, culturally-informed, and outcomes driven. And we take these services into the community to teach, nurture, and support individuals and families in impactful and lasting ways:
- We teach young mothers how to care for their newborns.
- We educate parents so they can help their children succeed in school.
- We support isolated older adults and persons with disabilities so they may age in place in their own homes.
- We relieve caregivers with vital respite time for self, work, or family.
Celebrating 140 Years of Bringing Health & Hope into the Home
Since our founding in 1877, Family Lifeline has flourished for more than a century because of our responsiveness to the changing needs of those we serve. Our name throughout the years has reflected this evolution – The City Mission (1877), Associated Charities (1905), Family Service Society (1928), Family & Children’s Services (1963) and today, Family Lifeline (2001). We encourage you to trace our history to discover a vision that is as vibrant today as it was when we were first founded.Our History
