I helpd out the mothers by watching their childern while they went to school or work on Saturdays. I did not charge and I did not mind. I gave free rides to appointments and provided resources when ever I could. I love how Pacific LifeLine changed my life and the many mothers that were changed as well.

I have been working with this charity for several years and it has been a joy. I love to see the items that are given and the wishlists that are forfilled. The care that is put into helping the mothers be able to support their families emotional, and physically. The prayer that is given and just work that goes into making the families a success touches me in very special ways.

I lived at Pacific Lifeline for just over a year. I can absolutely say that it was the most important event that shaped my future. My family thrives now. I know that none of it would be possible without this program. They opened doors and gave me opportunities that I just wasn't able to on my own. Not only did they take me under their wing, but when it was time to move out, they helped me find my apartment. Then they helped me get into a program to ensure that I could afford it! They have continued to provide love, support, and assistance for me and my children for almost 10 years now, and I know that isn't changing. I have also made life long friendships with the other residents and staff. Hands down the best program there is!

Pacific Lifeline is truly unique in their approach to empowering women to be self sufficient. Pacific Lifeline undertakes the objective to provide skills training, education and practical experiences to develop women that will be capable and qualified to become self sufficient in a tough economic time and competitive job market. Bravo!

Lifeline is a committed non-profit that moves beyond charity. Charity is great, it is important to give, but Lifeline moves toward justice. They look see women redeemed, transformed, loved, empowered and it happens, time and time again. There is a reason why the graduates of their program stay committed to the shelter for years and years. We need more organizations of this mold.

What I love about Pacific Lifeline is that they truly embrace the notion that if you give someone a fish they eat for one day~but if you teach a person to fish they eat for a lifetime. Pacific Lifeline truly empowers women to better their situation and 'graduate' into great contributers in our community while encouraging others to do the same.
