The ladies ministry supports this mission.
Lifeline Family Center offers a positive alternative to abortion, giving both mother and baby hope for the future.
Lifeline Family 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. Our goal is to enable them to redirect their lives and become self-supporting within two years after the birth of their child. We are unique in that we are not only concerned with saving a baby from abortion, but also with saving the child from a life of poverty and neglect. We care as much about the mother as we do the child, and our program addresses the needs of both. A young woman coming to Lifeline Family Center is given the gift of hope by providing her a home, scholarship opportunities and care for her child while she pursues an education for a career. It is our hope to introduce her, or reacquaint her, with the unconditional love of Jesus Christ. Lifeline Family Center provides services without the assistance of governmental agencies. We strive to operate according to biblical principles in providing the highest standards of life and education for our residents. We have a parenting educational curriculum to provide assistance to teenage parents and their families. The activities of this corporation shall not attempt to influence legislation or political campaigns. Lifeline Family Center will work toward expanding into a larger home serving as a pattern for other maternity homes in other locations.
In addition to our residential program, we are actively serving our community through various outreach programs. Our Hope Hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with trained staff that can assist immediate crises. We have monthly outpost locations in Lehigh, Fort Myers, Bokeelia and North Fort Myers. Every outpost location offers free pregnancy tests, counseling and referral services. Also available to the community are free limited ultrasounds by appointment here at Lifeline Family Center. We not only seek to help pregnant women, but we want to reach women dealing with the devastation of having experienced an abortion or miscarriage. Through our Healing Hearts Bible Study, we are helping women heal mentally, emotionally and spiritually from their loss. Last but certainly not least, we are reaching the youth. Through Relationships Under Construction we are reaching middle and high school students and through Life College we are reaching the college aged students. From shelters, to youth groups, to alternative schools, we are teaching students to “think it over, and miss the mess”. The emotional and physical mess that becoming sexually active before marriage can bring to a young person. Life College is also currently present on every college campus in Lee County, bringing every service mentioned above to college students.
Scripture mandate for Lifeline Family Center is Isaiah 58:12b
9 Then you will call, and the LORD will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.
“If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.
11 The LORD will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
12 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins
and will raise up the age-old foundations;
you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.
