Incorporated in 1973, Lifeline was founded by local community volunteers passionate about making a difference in the lives of youth and providing services in areas where gaps in resources existed. This remains our focus today as we continue to provide cutting-edge, trauma-informed, community-based programming.

Together, alongside our stakeholders, partners, and donors, we reflect on the legacy of the past, celebrate our present, and look forward to the future as we build self-reliance among youth, adults, and families across San Diego County. Thank you for your continued support.

Your support will go to:

Behavioral Health programs that work with youth and adults who are struggling with mental health issues, emotional trauma, substance abuse, and thoughts of suicide.

Helping youth and families to overcome poverty, homelessness, and trauma.

Providing transition aged foster youth housing and support services to help bridge the gap between foster care and independence so that they can become successful, independent adults.

Offering youth a safe, creative, and positive after school environment for them to learn, grow, and thrive.
