Pacific Lifeline provides women with a wonderful opportunity to rebuild their lives. Much of Pacific Lifeline's success is due to the weekly counseling provided for both the mothers AND their children AND the fact that most women are able to live at Pacific Lifeline for one year. After one year they are self sufficient and less likely to succumb to homelessness. Wonderful program and great staff!
