                          Today's Program: Lifeline Family Center

Kathy Miller, Founder and Executive Director was our speaker today. Lifeline Family Center offers a positive alternative to abortion, giving both mother and baby hope for the future. The agency is dedicated to maintaining the current residence for 12 young women and 24 children, and in the future, offering transition housing to serve as a pattern for other maternity homes in other locations. The center is a home dedicated to saving the unborn, and providing young women in unplanned pregnancies with a comprehensive educational program in a safe, secure Christian home. Their goal is to enable the women to redirect their lives and become self-supporting within two years after the birth of their children. They are unique in that they are not only concerned with saving a baby from abortion, but also with saving the child from a life of poverty and neglect. A young woman coming to Lifeline Family Center is given the gift of hope by providing her a home, scholarship opportunities, and child care while she purses education for a career.  To learn more visit   or call 239-242-7238.
