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

How we help families with young children:

How we help older adults and 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.
