Lifeline Family Centers is Giving Both Mother and Baby Hope For The Future
From the moment you walk through the doors of Lifeline Family Center, you can feel the warmth and compassion of the home. The girls are engaged with volunteers learning life skills while the babies are cared for in the nursery.
The center was founded in 1996 and offers young, pregnant women a 2-year program including a home, scholarship opportunities and childcare while they pursue their education. In addition to saving unborn children, Lifeline works to enable these young mothers to become self-supporting members of society, preventing them from living in poverty.
The mission is clear. “Lifeline Family Center offers a positive alternative to abortion, giving both mother and baby hope for the future.”
Lifeline is reaching out beyond the home to serve the community as well. A wide variety of free services are offered including pregnancy tests, non-medical ultrasounds, abstinence education, a college outreach program and a 24/7 hotline and counseling for women considering an abortion or having experienced an abortion.
Lifeline also provides adoption assistance for birth mothers who choose adoption, in addition to Healing Hearts, a bible study focusing on healing the mental, emotional and spiritual devastation associated with abortion or miscarriage.
The center provides all services without the assistance of government funding through donations, grants and volunteers. Lifeline’s annual benefit dinner is an opportunity for the community to support the center.
The 2017 Benefit Dinner, “Courage to Dream Big,” promises to be entertaining as they bring the producer of “God’s Not Dead (1 and 2) to southwest Florida for the keynote. The Dinner is scheduled for Thursday, March 30, in the fellowship hall of McGregor Baptist Church. Tickets will be available for $70 each or a table of eight for $400.
Lifeline’s latest venture in 2017 will focus on transitional housing, a 4-plex of two bedroom apartments built on site for graduates of the program. Nursery care will continue to be available for the children.
